I just saw the scariest shit ever

A commercial for Orville Redenbacher popcorn in which they used the man himself as a spokesperson.

Yes, he's been dead for some time. They brought him back anyway.

So beyond the questionable wisdom of using a dead man as your spokesman, they decided to go totally digital. So now it actually looks like they dug up the old man's corpse and made it talk and move with marionette strings. The lips don't even sync with the dialogue!

Here's an article on the abomination, with a still from the commercial.

I can't help but wonder how long until we see Dave Thomas giving a postmortem endorsement for Wendy's now.

I saw that too, it's so horrible. Let the poor man rest.

Lip Sync is Youtube's fault
I'm guessing the sound doesn't match up because of what YouTube does to certain video formats. Try this one, and bear the full brunt of zombie Orville's wrath: http://www.orville.com/aboutUs.jsp
