Derek Hough to be part of the live commercials during Hairspray Live! broadcast

This is so cool! Seems like NBC wants to keep us in our seats even during the commercials as actors of the show will be part of the commercials! Derek (as Corny Collins) will have his part on this for an Oreo ad!
So…be sure to have everything you need right next to you (food, drinks and…tissues if you think you’ll get emotional during the show) so you won’t miss anything! 😉

You can read more on News1130 (via Associated Press). Thanks Ann and HappyHough for the heads up 🙂

Similarly, actor Derek Hough, who plays Corny Collins in “Hairspray Live!,” will stay in character following a musical number to extol the virtues of Oreo cookies.

In a couple of other commercial breaks, NBC will show live backstage scenes from the musical on a split screen with ads.

Really love this cute gif of Derek as Corny Collins with the Oreo cookie! Waiting to watch the full live commercial tonight!

Twist, shout, and dunk during #HairsprayLive! tomorrow at 8/7c! Sponsored by @oreo.
