Thursday, March 24, 2005 8:35 AM
Well, we now know that Mr. Six has been living at the Shady Oaks Retirement home all winter and he stored the bus inside a barn. See it all in the new Six Flags National Ad Campaign titled "Retirement Home". In which Mr Six is featured getting a Six Flags park ready for the 2005 Season and the announcer proclaims they are 100% committed to making your day great. See the video and write up here:

That's a great spot, much improved from last year. You submitted this to news, right?

Sorry that's where I woke up this morning...;)

I edited my post. Thanks.

Sam, I'm with you. However, I got excited about their ad campaign last year, things started out promising at the begining of the season and only got worst. I'm very interested in this promise of improved ride times.

It's a great commercial, but we'll see how "committed" they were come November.

I like the ad a lot.

Seems like a good idea to choose a mascot, establish brand recognition and run with it nationally.

It surely "revitalizes" the campaign for me. I enjoyed the ads last year at first but grew tired of them as the season went on. But this is nice and fresh. I especially like the theatric music used before the dance sequence begins. I hope everything turns out well for them with the perceived better customer service push.

It's a great ad -- catchy music, uses an established character in an interesting way. Good stuff.

That reminds me of the school bus driver I had when I was in 2nd grade. She spent too much time in a bar that she drive through a barn.

Let just hope they don't overuse Mr. Six, like...hmmm...lets say the Mastercard priceless ads.

I LOVE Mr. Six...I'm almost infatuated with him. I really like this new ad a lot and I am very happy he's back this year.

I wish I knew more about the actor who plays him; is it common knowledge that he is a young guy or a girl with prosthetic makeup? Maybe the mystery is what makes Mr. Six so appealing.

...Like a lot of other successful businessess, like say, McDonnalds. This is the right approach for SF, imho.

As much as I bash them, I really hope the best for SF this season and beond.
