Probably not worthy of an actual news item, but it seems that the creepy old dude is going to be headed around the Six Flags chain - in person!
Article from the Chicago Sun Times:
I really think that this guy (along with his theme song from the Venga Boys) was one of the best marketing moves I've seen in years (maybe since AFLAC got their duck?) Not too many people around that haven't seen/heard the commercial at least once.

Currently the Bus is sitting right out in front of SFGAm, Im guessing this tour is starting there.

There are at least two Six Flags buses, because one is also at Six Flags New Orleans right now. One will be at Six Flags St. Louis July 3-5, which is during the time the one will be at Six Flags Great America.
The SF parks that I know have (or will soon) had the bus at their park are -
Six Flags Over Georgia
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom
Six Flags America
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Six Flags Astroworld
Six Flags New Orleans
Six Flags Great America
Six Flags St. Louis
It may have already been at other parks, but I don't know of any more.

SFEG had a bus with the plate "Mr. Six" back in May.

The bus sitting at SFGAm has the plates "Mr Six1" and has Oklahoma plates(one of the headquarters for Six Flags). It was actually cool to see this bus in person. It has that retro look to it. :)
