Anderson "McZesty" Davis
OROVILLE, Calif. -

A Butte County native has hit it big with a national ad campaign. On Saturday, he returned home to Oroville for the grand opening of Lord's Gym on Bird Street.

Oroville's own Anderson "McZesty" Davis is the face of the Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing campaign.

He was born and raised in Butte County, attending both Las Plumas and Oroville High School.

The former Butte College baseball player moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to pursue a career in acting. He said he got the support he needed from his family and friends in the Northstate.

"It's great to be able to have family kind of say, you can do it, and have yourself find that encouragement and that drive to just make whatever your dreams are happen," said Davis. "Then to accomplish what you've set out to do, is a good feeling."

After responding to an advertisement on Craigslist for a former national Sharp Aquos campaign, Davis is now also the face of the national Sauza Tequila advertisements.

Davis currently resides in Southern California with his wife and children.
