No one was cooler than Spuds back in the day. No one.
Slurms McKenzie FTW
Spuds. Mascot of which weak-A, watered-down, domestic beer-flavored Kool-Aid? I'm rather glad to say I do not recall. Spuds may have been cool(I probably wasn't paying attention)
He took the commercial world by storm. You couldn't go anywhere without people talking about him.
My vote goes to the 7-Up Cool Spot guy.
Nobody rocked sunglasses nearly as well as he did, and he had a friggin Super Nintendo game. SUPER NINTENDO.
Eddie from IRON MAIDEN. Probably more recognized globally over any mascot \m/
So did he
The original Bernie Brewer, mascot of the Milwaukee Brewers in the 70s. When the Brewers would score a run he'd slide down a chute into a giant beer stein. Apparently they had to get rid of him because it sent a bad message to the kids.
Mac Tonight. And I hate Mickey Ds
I remember Spuds! Great marketing there even if for crappy pseudo beer
This was before the "Pit Bulls are all evil" scare. I wonder if anyone would use a Bull Terrier for marketing anymore being they're also a "bully breed"..?
1. He had an NES game, not SNES.
2. Sunglasses>bunny ears
3. He's right up there with M.C. Hammers' parachute pants on the list of things that humanity should forever be ashamed of.
4. Did anyone ever actually like the Noid? Wait, I actually have the answer to this...
The Noid was ok, the worst by far was "Bad Andy" for the Dominoes Pizza chain:
Spuds was great. I remember begging my parents for a Spuds dog.
slurms and the noid. this thread has it all.
Meh, stolen from Don Cherry's pet/ mascot that appeared on Hockey Night in Canada long before Spuds. Derivative.
I couldn't stand the Noid, but he did inspire a memorable incident: http://mentalflossr.tumblr.com/post/8809550162/how-the-noid-led-to-a-hostage-situation
Dont speak ill of the Noid. While he was no Cool Spot, he was nothing to be ashamed of.
There is a lot of merit to this statement.
Worldwide maybe, but not for the US.
Showing my bias...
