Not the Jack one thinks of as a bass hero...

    It reminds me of that Electric Company or Sesame Street song (can't remember which one) that went "One of these is not like the others... One of these things just doesn't belong..."

    Good commercial, looking forward to seeing them all tomorrow night. But of course it's ironic that in these types it's always the role of the bass player. But I look at as not a negative poking fun, but rather in the case Jack is the bass player so that is way cool :smug:

    I had no idea what Jack in the Box was until now...

    That is the creepiest fast food mascot of all time.

    No, the creepiest was the original Ronald McDonald as portrayed by Willard Scott.
    Jack Box is weird at forst glance but the character development that's been made over the years has been pretty funny, and they don't shy away from racey scenarios. Faves: "Patty, call the doctor! It's been four hours!...oh, hi, Jack..."
    and
    JACK: This is the weirdest commercial I've ever been in!
    SECRETARIES: We could kiss....

    The current Jack ad campaign began in 1995, as the restaurant had been recovering from some negative publicity surrounding their food-handling. The have risen from the bottom of the quality race, to being one of the top-rated chains. They are not found east of the Mississippi River, yet.

    This ad is the second to feature Jack with big hair. There was an ad set in the 70's, over a decade ago, when the 70's nostalgia trend was strong.
