Twins from Fort Lee enjoy Walgreens commercial fame

Twin sisters from Fort Lee have become overnight sensations as the new spokespeople for Walgreens. At 77, identical twins Francis and Iris Toback are now adjusting to celebrity life.

The two heard through Iris' daughter that Walgreens was looking for a pair of twins for their new flu shot ad. So they went to audition - and got the job. On location in Harlem, they got hair, makeup, and wardrobe, and were ready for their close-ups. They say the flu-shot scene wasn't as glamorous as it seems, with the scene having 14 takes.

With the earnings from the commercial, the twins say they were very good to their grandchildren.
