 features a "cleanup man" 
optical illusion.

It's deceptive advertising.

And if you really liked this guy, you could order a set of 3 portraits of Northern's little "All American Boys" for 25 cents.

  1. Hi, I'm not sure how the optical illusion in that ad works but it sure is one hell of a scary advertisement. The boy looks like Chuckie the doll! That is a big no-no in any bespoke packaging, I'd reckon.
