The Canadian Tire Guy Gets Axed

he Ned Flanders of Canadian advertising, The Canadian Tire Guy, has been pulled from the Canadian airways. The uber annoying suburbanite who had a tool for everything, had been face of Canadian Tire for 8 years. Dude take your self loading, 115 bit, solar powered, adjustable jet drill and get the hell out of my driveway.

In less important news, Milosevic has died, before he could face judgment from the international court on charges of crime against humanity. Rumour has it he was not taking pills to control high blood pressure.

Boom Boom Geoffrion has died. The man who created the slapshot, Habs legend Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion has died. To bad, it had been reported that the Habs were going to retire his number 5 tonight before the Canadien vs. Rangers game at the Bell Centre.

It seems that an American tugboat has killed Luna the Whale. Luna whom a native group in B.C. believe was the reincarnation of a former chief, had a bit of a dangerous fixation with humans and their boats. There were numerous attempts to get Luna to deep water, but Luna just loved human contact too much, silly whale people and their machines are nothing but trouble.

But all is not lost, the Canadian Tire guy has been turfed,the rumble that you hear is Canadians doing their best version of the happy dance. How messed up are we as a culture when the cancellation of a series of ads can be at the head of each newscast? Crazy.

Wow... it really took them 8 years to realize their mistake? Sad.

Don't let the garage door hit your ass on the way out.

Can anyone tell me why he was fired? The guy made me cringe everytime he was on their commercials (and CT commercials are 1 out of 3 commercials on Canadian TV). Why did it take CT 8 years to figure out that this idiot drove us nuts?
