Freaky Old Guy

The only thing that could possibly be more bothersome than Garth Brooks singing about being an individual in that annoying Dr. Pepper commercial is that creepy old guy in the red jumpsuit that is so clearly not an old guy at all.

Fortunately, I’m not the only one bothered by this freak of nature. So is Steve over at RedNeckHigh, who’s dedicated a page to the spasming idiot sitting next to the famous guitar-playing idiot. He managed to find out who directed the commerical, but hasn’t been able to hunt him down because he’s no longer with the same advertising firm (is it any wonder that the guy who though the super homogenized Garth Brooks would be a good person to pick to sing about being unique?).

Cheers, Steve, for your research and good luck in finding out the mystery behind the Freaky Old Guy. We here at the Ping are 100% behind your efforts.
