Mr. Six made a top ten list, but not a good one!

Burger King gets my vote among the creepiest. I was relieved, however, to see "Smilin' Bob" from the Enzyte ads...apparently one of the side-effects is uncontrollable repulsiveness...

His name is Danny Teeson. Under all of that makeup, he is tasty. :)

Edit- Here's another site!

Ok, that first link wasn't that great, but thanks for the second one! I wouldn't kick him outta bed for eatin' crackers! ;)

How about for playing "We Like To Party" over and over? :) Hope he doesn't sound like Mr. Six.

Since the Geico money was mentioned, at PPP, the ops at the Trapeze had a boom box, and they asked me if I wanted to hear Beat It or the Geico song. I guess "Somebody's Watching Me" is more suitable for Halloween. At least they didn't have the whistling tune from the Enzyte commericals. :)

Tigerman, the first one was just for reference. It says that he played Mr. Six in the commercials. At one time, it was a mystery who was inside all the Mr. Six makeup. It does suck that IMDB doesn't have many photos of Teeson.

Funny thing is that I always found myself oddly attracted to Mr. Six. I couldn't understand it. He is a skinny, old guy. When I saw Teeson, and found out that he was Mr. Six, it all made a little more sense to me. lol

I wouldn't kick him outta bed for eating ANYTHING... ;)

I almost went to work for an ad agency in South Florida a few years ago who won the Six Flags account (at the time, worth $75 mil). They won it by staging a funeral of Mr. Six. The video they showed me took place in a church with Mr. Six in a coffin and with hired mourners.

Apparently, the creativity won them the account, but I was surprised that they brought him back to life.

Love him or hate him, at least you feel something, which is more than half the battle in advertising.

That's because those people were idiots. Six Flags finally had a brand that people identified and I think generally liked, which was a nice change from "Six Flags sucks." If they're the people that came up with the screaming Asian guy, that was a poor choice.
