From all sorts of sources on the web today, the word is that the Quaker Oats spokesmodel (and Barbara Bush lookalike) “Larry” has gotten a makeover. And here’s the proof:
Larry? Seriously? I didn’t know that Quakers named their kids “Larry”. I thought they all had crazy names; like Adolphus, Gideon, Thaddeus, or Shaniqua. Larry? Really? And the crazy part of this is that THIS isn’t a makeover. Do you really see much weight loss? Looks like he just quit drinking Michelob Amber Bock beer for a day and lost some of the bloating.
Want a makeover? THIS is a makeover:
Aunt Jemima went from Hattie McDaniel’s “Gone With The Wind” character to Oprah Winfrey overnight. Top that, Quaker Oats. Or anybody else out there who’s thinking of changing their spokes-cartoon. I’m looking straight at you, Toucan Sam.
