Kristen Schaal Was Almost The New Face Of Hormel Meats

Now that Kristen Schaal has officially reached leading lady status, thanks to her scene-stealing role as Carol on The Last Man on Earth, it was only a matter of time before companies started approaching her to shill for their products. And why not! Schaal is lovely, talented, and funny, and any brand would be lucky to have her as their spokesperson.

As Schaal explained to James Corden Tuesday night on The Late Late Show, however, she had to make the unfortunate decision to turn down her first product endorsement when she was approached by none other than Big Processed Meat at Hormel. You know, for dignity and all that. I do like her commercial idea, though. I may be married now, but personally couldn’t fathom going on a date without getting my processed meat fix on first.
