9 Most Iconic Spokespeople

From Mikey ("he likes it!") to the Red Stripe guy ("hooray for beer!"), these are the salespeople you've weirdly come to identify with as actual ficitional characters over the years. Megan Mullally is only on this list because of her very special wipe. Who'd we forget?

1. Red Stripe Embassador Loses His Pants (Red Stripe Light)

2. The Bartles And Jaymes Guys

They're emblematic of a simpler time in America.

3. Megan Mullally Dances ("I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!")

Wait for the :29 second mark -- there it is!! The Megan Mullally Wipe!

4. Joe Isuzu

He got a sitcom gig from this, right?

5. Wilford Brimley (Quaker Oats)

Wilford Brimley is his own kind of fictional character.

6. Flo (Progressive)

I went to a Halloween where someone was dressed as Flo. It was a very good costume.

7. William Shatner (Priceline)

The best short jingle in recent years. "Price. Line. NegotiATor!"

8. "Where's The Beef" Old Ladies (Wendy's)

They're still adorable. And I assume they're all dead now>

9. Mikey (Life Cereal)

Mikey DID NOT DIE from eating Pop Rock and then drinking soda. He's still alive today, and probably very, very rich.

I mostly like old, unpopular things, like from 2002. I'm also 102 years old.
