Men’s Warehouse Fires Founder and Spokesman
The world of TV commercials will never be the same. Yesterday, Men’s Warehouse fired their founder and spokesman, George Zimmer. Since the mid 80′s, Zimmer had been the spokesman for the company, saying the famous words that we all know from their commercials, “You’re gonna like the way you look. I guarantee it”
As a child of the 80′s and 90′s, I grew up hearing those commercials. This just seems like a travesty. Can you imagine Frosted Flakes just firing Tony the Tiger? How about Michelin just telling the Michelin Man to take a hike?
This also poses the big question, who will be in their commercials now? Will they use someone else to say that legendary line? Will they go with something completely different? All I know is, I’m not gonna like it, I guarantee it.
