Keith Troy, a New Rochelle, NY native who currently resides in Rego Park, admits that he’s 32 going on 13. While he’s established himself in the advertising world (he said he works in “hell”), most of the time he finds himself acting well below his age and spewing off movie lines of such juvenile classics as Wedding Crashers and Ace Ventura.
We caught up with the self professed “advertising monkey” recently, and asked him all about how he spends his nights and weekends. Actually, that’s not true, because if we asked him that, we’d have to censor just about everything he said and a few of you might have been offended – especially you sir… yes, you with the sweater and purple glasses.
Why did you decide to get into your line of work?
I got into my line of work because The Naked Cowboy job was taken.
Yes, there can be only one Naked Cowboy and one ring to rule them all but that’s not important now. What are the pluses and minuses of your job?
Pluses: I know everything and it shows. Minuses? No one else knows anything.
I know the feeling. Hey, have you ever filed a TPS report?
Yes, a long time ago
Riiight…. Hey who do people say you resemble most?
Ace Ventura and E. from Entourage. Either way, I will never bang Lauren Holly or Nikki Hilton.
Hey don’t sell yourself so short. You never know. If you could be anything in life, what would it be?
A singer in a rock band minus the drug habits.
That’s inspirational. Bronson Pinchot of Perfect Strangers was an inspiration for us all. Who would win in a fight between him and Charles Bronson?
Cousin Balki would win because Charles Bronson is dead.
Fair point. Is it true The Big Lebowski was loosely based on your life?
Yes, kind of because every quote in that movie has come out of my mouth once before.
If you could offer any advice to children what would it be?
No one is ugly after 3 a.m.
That’s beautiful. If you could write a jingle for a television commercial what would it be called and what product would it be?
“Beer is good for me” for beer.
Lastly, what was your childhood dream?
To not dream as an adult of what I wanted as a child.
