The ad, directed by The Wonder Years star Fred Savage, teams up the two stars in a soap spoof called As the Room Turns. The plot casts Shields and Maroulis as a couple reunited after "Stavros" returns from a successful face-transplant operation, only to be shocked that his living room was transformed with new furniture. After the revelation, Shields dramatically goes for the classic soap opera face slap when accused of lying that the furniture is from La-Z-Boy.
"Touch my new face with your mouth," Maroulis purrs to Shields in his best overdone Greek accent.
Maroulis is no stranger to soaps, having starred on The Bold and the Beautiful. Both Broadway veterans (Maroulis starred in Rock of Ages, The Wedding Singer and Jekyll and Hyde, while Shields was in The Addams Family, Cabaret, Grease and Wonderful Town) appear to be having a ball.
