Asian American Commercial Watch: Experian’s “Furniture Showroom” – Credit Swagger

While watching The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, I saw this recent Experian commercial (as part of a series of “credit swagger” ad campaign) starring Taiwanese American actress Camille Chen:

She knows she qualifies for all the great deals and wants to know what else the salesman can offer her. She gets lower and lower into the chair to give subtle hints she wants the ottoman, not same day delivery. See what you can have with Experian.”

Your credit score, commonly known as FICO, and essentially determines how credit worthy you are and whether or not you are qualified for a loan, and can affect what interest rate you can get on a loan. By law, you can get a free credit report once a year from the three major credit agencies – here at

After Googling “experian commercial actress,” I discovered that I’ve seen Chen in other television commercials – I think my first recollection is her in a State Farm commercial, and maybe this Wendy’s commercial for their Berry Almond Chicken Salad – though she looks a bit different from the Experian and State Farm commercial.
