My Top Ten Most Embarrassing Print Jobs

Client: Just For Men
Tragic haircut, especially for a hair care product.  Plus it looks like I’m wearing lipstick. It may be just for men, but I like it too.


Client:  Local golf shop
Though this ad appeared in the “Style” section of the newspaper, “style” is not the first word that comes to mind.  “Tool” perhaps.


Client: Britches of Georgetown
Why am I wearing swim goggles and holding a pineapple and how exactly does that sell suits?


Client: Digene
Here I am the poster-husband for giving my “wife” HPV.  Nice.


Client:  Stock photo
Nobody looks good in a call center, least of all me.


Client:  RUS Uniforms
I just want to punch myself for ever looking like this.


Client:  LaserVision Centers
The glasses can’t take all the blame for making me that repulsive.


Client: Circuit City
Fish-eye lens and a receding hairline… not a good combo.


Client: V Magazine
Tennille can hang, but the Captain’s gotta go.


Client: Stark and Legum
“My Village People audition went great!”
