Does this guy disturb anyone else here?
« on: August 24, 2004, 08:09 PM »


There's just something that I can't quite put my finger on about this guy.  I find him bothersome and annoying, but at the same time, as soon as one of his commercials comes on, I can't look away. . .

It's as if I'm hyp-no-tized. . .  by. . .  the TV!

Yes, and yes to the hypnotized aspect too.

I saw commercials all summer for the theme park he ads for, and they're really disturbing.  Oddly, he looks a LOT to me like Dana Carvey in heavy make-up.

Really freakish...

I almost have a sick feeling when I see close-ups too.  Disturbing.

This has happened to us this past summer when these commercials were in full force as well.  I don't really see them much anymore here, but as much as I found this guy, the song, and the commercials annoying...we'd watch them each time it came on.  My wife thinks this is a girl in heavy makeup, and I could see that being possible too.

He disturbs me immensely.  And that damn song.

It's a young guy wearing prosthetics to make himself look old - in a six flags commercial.  He dances absurdly fast for an 'old' man and is accompanied by an amazingly annoying song.

I can't stand him.

He's in commercials for the various Six Flags Amusement Parks around the country...  They were running a big advertising campaign using him all summer long (showing him dancing, riding coasters, and generally being an all around goof).

Funny stuff, and yes - it is mesmerizing!  And that damned song...  Had it stuck in my head when I was going to bed last night, thanks to this stupid thread!   >:(

EDIT:  Whoops, looks like Rob beat me to it by a minute.   :P

I have to admit that I like both the commercial AND the song (which, btw, is "We Like To Party" by the Vengaboys).  I find the dancing "old" coot amusing.

Flame away!

I won't go to 6 Flags until they stop running that blasted commercial. Hopefully, they won't include him in their Halloween themed commercials, because I'd really like to hit 6 Flags this year...
