John Stamos now hawks Greek yogurt

John Stamos has joined the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis in the yogurt endorsement game, reports Food Beast.

The actor appears in commercials for a Dannon product, Oikos Greek yogurt. Jesse Katsopolis would be is Stamos.

“I am a proud Greek and a proud yogurt eater. And when the call from Dannon came in, and after I tasted Dannon Oikos, I couldn't say no,” the actor said of his new gig.

The TV spot compares Dannon Oikos to French champagne and Swiss chocolate, and sees Stamos bringing the yogurt to a swanky party.

    If I were given the money Stamos gets for the endorsement, I might be tempted to call Oikos Greek. I've tasted it just once and it does not approach the "real thing". I too am a proud Greek-American & I visit Greece every year where I enjoy authentic sheep-milk yawourti.

    From Wikipedia:
    "An oikos (ancient Greek: οἶκος, plural: οἶκοι, English prefix: Eco for Ecology and Economics) is the ancient Greek equivalent of a household, house, or family."

    Why'd they call the yogurt "household/house/family"?

    Other related news found that 52 people, including the CNN Contributor, could not mention the name of the show that Stamos was on in the 1990's. A forgotten actor hawking yogurt that is gonna be forgotten, it's gonna taste like sour cream before it's taken off the market. 😛

    If Stamos was promoting Oikos brand Greek Yogurt before Dannon bought it, I might have thought his support for the brand was cool. Dannon and Yoplait (along with many other brands) add too much sugar and other preservative ingredients that really throw the flavor of the yogurt off. My wife and I have tried pretty much everything we can find in the grocery store, and we can only find one that actually sticks its label and offers ingredients without too much added "crap." Chobani is the brand Stamos should be promoting, at least they sell yogurt that both tastes good and is good for you.

    I have a feeling the comments on this site are from immature 12 yr olds based on the language being used. Perhaps they should go back to school to learn English and how to express themselves properly. Better yet, learn to be better people all together. Now let the bashing people get off on bashing others, it makes you feel more important. Have a nice day!
