April 23rd, 2011

Being photographed with this pop is more daring than anything Evel Knievel ever did.

    You can bet this kid,now a man,has been copping it from his siblings for 30 yrs for this pic.My sister was the baby model for a babywear spread in our local mag in 1963,and we STILL give her grief for the pic where she has a fist full of soggy biscuit -and it’s nowhere as bad as this.

    Steady son! That’s how I started.

    Michael Cera – you were a goofy kid.

    “It’s a ROCKET SHIP!!”

  5. Doctor X says:

    I should point out that the kid is attempting to eat the plastic mold itself, not a popsicle. Suddenly, the goofy expression makes more sense.

  6. Rob says:

    Hmmm. Bad hair…goofy smile…long cylinder-shaped object in the mouth.
    Is Justin Bieber a time traveler??

  7. Solana says:

    Does anyone else think the kid looks like Norman Bates?

  8. Abe says:

    Ice cream lobotomy?

    Best ad ever! By far.

    Ahh, memories. Somewhere in a family photo album is a picture of me and my two brothers, posing in front of the big, ornate gates in front of Evel Knievel’s palatial estate in glorious Butte, Montana. The left gate had/has a big, scrolly E, and the right one, a big, scrolly K, natch. It was quite the destination for redneck, hick tourists like us, yeah, buddy!

    This is exactly the type of ad that makes people want desperately to buy a product.

    Hahaha holy crap! Someone has to find out what happened to this kid. Guarantee he regretted this ad, and desperately sought a mild-mannered life as an adult simply hoping people would simply forget this ever happened. It worked… until today. Ah, the power of the internet… :)

    Um, I think his name is Evel, not Evil.

    Best ad ever.

  17. Tom Flapwell says:

    The boy’s expression makes it that much worse.

    But please correct “Evel.” The spelling is right there.

  18. Dan says:

    Even the kid has that look on his face. “You want me to do WHAT?!”
