For Halloween this year I did my best Wilford Brimley impression. For you younger folks may not recognize this icon of television and movies. He was on the Walton’s TV show, a terrible show that resulted in the phrase “Good night John-Boy” that is used ad-naseum. His best known movie role being in Cocoon. He has has developed a hilarious cult following due to his LIberty Medical and Quaker Oats commercial advertisements. A picture of Brimley is below.
Hundreds of Video Remixes from Brimley’s Commercials have been posted on you-tube. My two personal favorites are posted below.
Here are two of the props that I made for the costume. I just cut out the lettering on my vinyl plotter and stuck it on a drill case I had laying around. The T-Shirt used heat transfer vinyl and a heat press. I still wear that shirt and I get some good laughs from people who figure it out.
