Dwaine Caraway's anti-saggy pants campaign has returned and this time, there's a spokesperson. What do you think of Big Mama/Mother Joe/Irma P. Hall? Does the use of a fictional character, in any way, remind you at all of any other fictional characters used in any other ads from the past? Why use a fictional character? Why not recognize Hall's talent and standing and use her real name?
Actually I think the real controversy here is that Mayor Pro Tem Caraway, enabled by Clear Channel, is so flagrantly ignoring some very good advice: "Any public official that is worrying about sagging pants probably needs to spend some time focusing on real problems out there. Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants."
