Why is this guy trying to sell me meat?



Noticed this guy a few months ago hanging from a big poster in my local food store. Now he graces the freezer section, fat face and all, right in front of my meat.

What store? I can't even remember what the supermarket was when I was living in Jersey... A&P? Shoprite? There was another one in Trenton that I rarely went to.

Either way, I have no interest in that fellas meat. Unless he's paying.

Well, ya see, he's a cowboy. Therefore, he's around walking meat containers often enough to know a good one when he sees it. Also, he's fat. Presumably from eating lots of meat. Like all good Americans do. So he's gotten fat from eating lots of meat, which he knows is good meat. He's kind of smiling, which means he's a kindly sort of fat cowboy man, one who is willing to share with you his secrets.

His meat secrets.

Its an A&P. Other popular NJ grocers include:

Shoprite
Stop & Shop
Foodtown
Acme
Wegmans
and if you want ghetto, C-Town.

Looks like a yankee carpet bagger to me, but what do I know, I mean I am only third generation texan, would be fourth, but my great grandfather had the misfortune to be born in Indian Territory, in what is now know as oklahoma. Anyway, do not touch his meat, it is most likely from a horse.

The next step in the ad campaign will be pics of the same guy, saying: "You can't beat my meat."




Okay, it's a moldy oldie, but it was just screaming to be used here . . . .

He's just a model. They want you to think if you eat that meat you will look just like him.

Haha, I think its the owner or something of the meat company, or at least someone pretending to be him.

But he's a real cowboy. Notice the hat and the kerchief.

Awe come on look at that baby face with the sure smile and a little twinkle in his eye.

There was a Hardies commercial a while back with this big fat guy on a stool talking about thick burgers that had the same jive to it. The guy was a heart attack waiting to happen.

That's a Caddy drivin' milk and meat fed cowboy business owner. Could he possibly be as model, I mean I know America is getting bigger but he seems a wee bit too big to be a "paid" spokesperson.

Either way I'm stayin' away from his meat.

You should see the Arby's and Krystal commercials here in the US. Plenty o' "bigger" men and women in 'em. And buying sackfuls of food. New marketing strategy to really go after their target market.

Neither do about 99% of the remakes that do get made, but that never stops anyone in Hollywood. Hey, it's a heck of a lot easier to rip off someone else's idea than to come up with one of your own, something the dream merchants prove over and over and over and . . . .
