Mr Six

I'm guessing you've seen the new Six Flags commercials with the old, bald guy on it. Turns out his name is Mr. Six, according to the official website. But have you seen the very first one? I saw it when I taped Century City one time and thought it was the funniest thing I'd seen in a long time. Turns out it's on the Six Flags website, along with all the others.

In a side note, I don't know why more companies don't put their commercials on their websites. They should be grateful someone actually wants to see them, instead of just putting up with them. In that sense, Burger King's Subservient Chicken website is a step in the right direction. Who needs television ads when people download them themselves?

I love that commercial! I didn't like the sequels as much as the first, because they didn't introduce him as being this old dodgy coot who transforms into the wild Mr. Six. Still it's a great campaign.
I agree. When they took the Snickers commercial off the site I thought the same thing, hasn't anyone ever thought about on-demand advertising? Forget pop-ups and pop-unders, just give us great commercials and free access to them.

By the way, that song in the commercial is EVERYWHERE in the park. It gets annoying pretty quickly, but it is memorable

I forgot you actually went there. I can imagine that music getting on your nerves after a while. And yeah, I don't think the other commercials are as good as the first. I didn't know what was coming, so when he suddenly exploded into the wild dancing, I busted out laughing.
