Tony Little

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Tony Little was pretty intense. He invented the Gazelle, an elliptical-type workout machine, and then proceeded to make a ton of commercials and workout videos.

Another thing I’m sure you’ve noticed about Tony is his amazing sense of style. Does he look like he’s from Florida to you too? I’m not really sure what I’m basing that on.

I knew Tony Little was “up to 88″ once he started making ironic commercials for Geico:

Dave Thomas

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Poor Dave Thomas (of the many Wendy’s commercials) has been up to 88 for a while now, ever since he died in 2002.

A few weeks later it was really creepy because they hired this actor who looked like him to continue the commercials. At least that’s what I thought, but I can’t find that anywhere on the internet, so maybe I just made it up. Rumor mill?

John Stamos

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Perhaps best known as ‘Uncle Jesse’ from Full House, John Stamos has been clinging to Hollywood’s B-list for years. After Full House he had a stint on ER and did some commercials for 1-800-COLLECT, which made this list of Dumbest Celebrity Product Endorsements of All Time.

Oh John, we all loved you in Full House but there comes a time in every actor’s life when they have to accept that they have gotten up to 88.
