(Sacramento, CA) Before they were joined together in a bizarre computer generated creation as puppymonkeybaby, the puppy, the monkey and the baby were joined together for the commercial right here in Northern California.
The Mountain Dew Super Bowl spot that features the dancing cross-species tribrid, was cast by Toni Staniewicz Casting, whose website, ToniStaniewiczCasting.com, is managed and operated by Sacramento’s own Casting Calls America.
Originally cast as a live event for the Mountain Dew NFL Experience the eventual filming of the puppy, the monkey and the baby became what was seen by millions during the Super Bowl broadcast.

“This really was a fun project,” said Toni Staniewicz, nationally recognized casting director and owner of ToniStaniewiczCasting.com. “Doing a national commercial is always interesting, but when I got the role break-down looking for a baby, a puppy and a monkey, I knew we had something really special.”
Kirk Uhler, co-founder and CEO of Casting Calls America, was equally amused by the project. “We get all kinds of roles for all kinds of project across the country, so it is rare when one actually raises my eyebrow. This one did!”
The spot for a Mountain Dew energy drink has become the most talked about Super Bowl commercial, with numerous websites suddenly appearing featuring the puppymonkeybaby creation.
