VALLEY STREAM (CBSNewYork) — Lee and Morty Kaufman, the stars of a TV commercial for Swiffer cleaning products, have become an overnight sensation.
The Valley Stream, Long Island, couple, who has been married for 44 years, landed the gig after their daughter knew a casting director. Morty is 91, and Lee is 90.
The spot shows Lee struggling with an old-school mop and bucket. After Morty opines that there should be an easier way, a package of Swiffer products is dropped off on their doorstep. The couple then marvels at how easy to use and effective the WetJet mop is.
