Commercial of the Week — Disturbing Icon Edition

March 20, 2008

Straight from the Mickey Rooney Show is this commercial for the Jolly Green Giant. Talk about one of the most frightening characters ever to appear on television, this commercial would scare the bejesus out of me if I were a kid — even more than the canned corn and peas he was trying to push.

And, yes, I think it’s funny that the vertically challenged Rooney has a Giant as a sponsor.
