In commercials for the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) medication Viberzi, Irritabelle (Ilana Becker) is the red-headed personification of a stomach ache with diarrhea, who always makes an entrance at the most unwelcome moments. She follows in the footsteps on weirdly chipper spokespersons like Flo the Progressive Girl and the Orbit Gum Girl.
The Orbit Girl (played by Vanessa Branch and Farris Patton) is a British woman who finds herself in dirty situations, like off-road safaris, but always wearing pristine white clothes, a scarf, and a smile. Perhaps the Orbit Gum that has something to do with that.
In the Apple Macintosh commercial, directed by Ridley Scott and aired during the 1984 Super Bowl, rows of people mindlessly march in step to Big Brother giving a speech on the telescreen. This monotony is broken up when a nameless runner (Anya Major) dressed in colorful gym clothes hurls a hammer through the screen, awakening the brainwashed masses from their routine.
Mr. Six had people of all ages excited about Six Flags when he danced his way into the amusement park’s advertisements. For those interested in copying Mr. Six’s suave style, it takes more than just putting on a tuxedo. You need to practice those wild dance moves. Otherwise people will just assume you’re dressed like a creepy old man.
Mr. Monopoly, known by some as Rich Uncle Pennybags, is perhaps the most famous fictional real estate mogul in history. Dressed to impress with a top hat and cane, the board game mascot is easy to bring to life. Just don’t expect your “get out of jail free” card to actually do anything.
Brawny Man is the manliest of the major paper towel brands. But he got a makeover a few years back and cleaned up his image. So if you wanna go full brawny like back in the 70s, you’ll want to grow out your hair, wear a mustache, and show a little chest.
Mr. Peanut, born Bartholomew Richard Fitzgerald-Smythe, has been the dapper face of the Planters snack food company since 1916. He always dresses to the nines, at least on his head, hands, and feet.
The Utz Girl is the face of a snacking empire stretching from Hanover, Pennsylvania to Baltimore, Maryland. You might consider accessorizing with the crab chips, but go with the original potato chips for the classic look. And most important of all, remember that Utz are better than nuts.
Originally called “Candied Popcorn and Peanuts”, Cracker Jack was sold at the first Chicago’s World Fair. Not only is it well known for coming with a prize, but it will be forever linked with baseball as sung in “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
