Whatever happened to the Canadian Tire guy?

    You know, Mr. Annoying Know-it-all who takes a generator and television on camping trips?

    He is 2nd Nazi from the right in "The Sound of Music".

    :D

    Does he stop in the middle of the performance to show the other Nazis a better way of doing Blitzkrieg with the new tool from Canadian Tire while his bemused, long suffering but cheerful frauline looks on?

    It looks like he was foreshadowing his career arc with his hand placement.

    I thought this was the funniest thing I had ever heard. I bet you he gets more interview requests than the newly minted Maria.

    Hey, I liked the wife in those ads. She was outta his league.

    I tried to find a sample of one of those ads on Youtube--just to prove how annoying he was, but couldn't find a single one.

    Lots of spoofs but not a single TV ad. It's like the Stalinist Soviet Union---through Crappy Tire's revisionist history, the ads never existed. Yeah, the wife was OK.

    The beginning of the end for those ads was the front-page story in Maclean's titled, "What a tool". It mentioned that Crappy Tire wouldn't allow interviews with either one of them so they could maintain the illusion they were a real couple.

    The guy should have run for Prime Minister. He would have united all Canadians--French, English, First Nations, gay and straight. Everyone would have hated him.
