Mr. Delicious, fast food chain killing mascot

Mr. Delicious was an aging divorcee who picked his teeth, had an anger management problem, and talked about getting a vasectomy. Using him as a fast food chain mascot was not a smart move. The documentary by Rax Roast Beef (below) was a response to negative public reaction to their creepy animated spokesperson.


And that, my friends, was the end of a promising career in show business for Mr. Delicious.

    Oh golly, I worked at Rax stocking the salad bar for about six months in the late 1980s and even though I was in my late teens working there gave me the existential ennui of Mr D. I left to pursue a career in NOID branded "30 Minutes or Less" pizza franchise management. Never looked back.
