Ga. Lawyer With Local Ties Makes Viral Super Bowl Ad

Posted: Updated:

There was one Super Bowl ad you probably didn't see, unless you were in Georgia. And the man behind it has local ties.

Jamie Casino sounds like an action star's name, but he's a real-life personal injury lawyer from Savannah, Georgia.  

His nearly two-minute long ad ran only in Georgia during the Super Bowl.

"I wasn't always a personal injury lawyer. I once was a notorious criminal defense lawyer employed by some of the most cold-hearted villains. My art brought me great wealth, until one day my little brother and his friend were two of four people whose lives were taken," Casino narrated in a very movie-esque voice.

"At some point a man must ask why God created him." Then the video cuts to a montage set to heavy metal music in which Casino tries to find himself and his calling in life.

"I'm attorney Jamie Casino and I don't represent villains anymore. I speak for innocent victims who cannot speak for themselves!"

Casino wrote and directed that ad himself. His ad is now on the front page of YouTube and has gotten more than two million views since February 2nd.

His viral ad has drawn more than 1,573 comments and counting on YouTube.

"10 Points for style :) If I were to chose between which lawyer to hire, i'd chose this guy just cause he's got balls to make this commercial. :)" writes one viewer.

"Sooooo...when is the movie coming out?" asked another viewer.

However, another viewer was slightly more skeptical, "I'm sure he's well meaning, but this is a bit over the top. It seems to have worked more to his benefit than not, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Still, I think this could have been a very effective ad without the special effects and heavy metal."

Casino is a Bristol native and his father is the former mayor of Tullytown. Casino graduated from Temple University before heading to Florida for law school and later Savannah to set up his practice.
