Just heard that Dick Wilson, the actor who played the Charmin-squeezing grocer in over 500 spots, past away today. (This is one of the more disparaged ad campaigns in history. So much so, that Luke Sullivan called his creative advertising book Hey Whipple, Squeeze This! in response.)

A moment of silence please nonetheless.
