I posted this thread in this section because it's about an actor who played in several TV shows. It's also about something related to TV. But if you don't think it should be there, feel free to move it!

Actor David Duchovny (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000141/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1) (X-Files, Californication) acted on a TV spot for a Russian beer brand, in which he wonders what his life could have been if he was born in Russia. The video has been published on YouTube on July 25, 2014:


In the intro, he mentions that his last name is Russian. Funnily enough, he posted on Twitter on April 4, 2014 that he just found out his last name was actually Ukrainian, and not Russian. Given the current situation between Russia and Ukraine these days, I found it quite amusing.
