henry cho as earl lee, barcelo vip

Several folks have sent this my way... Look who's front and center as the VIP in this commercial for Barceló Hotels & Resorts. It's none other than veteran comedian Henry Cho as big deal high roller Earl Lee, rocking a cowboy hat and living it up. He advises you to book early:

Early, Earl Lee -- get it? I haven't actually seen this commercial on TV (maybe I'm not watching the right channels), but the other videos on Barcelo's YouTube channel indicate that it's been edited into several different spots.

Henry Cho is definitely not the first person I'd think of for the job, but it's kind of cool to see an Asian guy in the spokesperson role for what is presumably aimed at the average aw-shucks American vacation seeker.
