Mr. Six May Be Deep Sixed


If Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has his way and takes over the Six Flags amusement park, he says the park's advertising and marketing need to be retooled and isn't sure he'd keep the famed dancing geriatric, Mr. Six on board in future ad campaigns. Doner Advertising Creative Director David Banta says Mr' Six scores well with moms and teens in consumer advertising awareness studies but Snyder thinks a more direct marketing type approach should be taken. Come on. Say it ain't so. We love the old guy.

Mr. Six was AMAZING the first time I saw him... still makes me laugh that he really DOES appear to be having THAT much fun.

Hey Snyder must know what he's talking about look at the dominating NFL team he's created over the past few years ...

His business and marketing sense can't really be challenged. I think that Mr. Six is a freak...and my kids think he's gross.

Oh ya...and about that DOMINATING NFL Team...his SEC filings gave some light to how DOMINATING he has made them as a franchise. They lose, they suck, they disappoint all of us in the DC Metro, yet they pulled in $300 million!!! After all is said and done it comes out to about $60million in PURE PROFITS - double what they were when he took control. Yep, that's DOMINATING...unless you put it up against the Yankee's.

If he could do for Sick Flags what he has done with the Redskins - marketing would have a sure pick for a winner.

Mr. Six really creeps me out. And now that I know his name is "Mr. Six", I'm creeped out even more.

Mr Six has got to go. While they're working on 86ing that geezer they need to rethink their soundtrack as well. I will not go to Six Flags till this current campaign is over. What sort of perv wears a suit to a waterpark?

Well, if park attendance is any indication, Mr. Six has failed miserably.

Kids love amusement parks. Kids love old guys trying to lure them somewhere with promises of fun?! Weird is not the word for this creepy geezer. Pedophile is probably closer, at least that's the idea that is conveyed to me. Also, 'We like to party' by the 'Venga boys', another ODD choice.
