The Bearded, Neutered Wonder

Canadian TireIt's been two years since we lost The Canadian Tire Guy, and I'm missing him now more than ever. Love 'em or hate 'em, you remember the Canadian Tire ads featuring Ted Simonett as the bearded, neutered male. Quick, tell me about a Canadian Tire ad you've seen since CTG left our screens?

The absence of The Canadian Tire Guy hasn't made anything better. In fact, it's made things worse. After two years, it's time to resurrect this poor bastard and make things right again.

I miss the pompous ass. I always wanted to know what this guy did for a living that allowed him to own a tool for every single household chore that exists. This guy owned tools for one time jobs.

Ha, I remember the Shoppers Drug Mart couple... weren't they actors on LA Law or something like that?

And speaking of Shoppers Drug Marts ads of the 1980s, Bea Arther was a great spokesman, errrr, I mean spokeswoman.... hell, I mean spokesman.

LA Law's Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker were that Shoppers Drug Mart married couple. Just to close the communication loop.
