Orville Redenbacher to rise from the dead

Orville2 So, Crispin Porter + Bogusky has digitally recreated Orville Redenbacher, bespectacled head to wing tip toe, for a new commercial directed by David Fincher that will first appear on the Golden Globes. (The picture here is from an old spot he did with his grandson.) He’s popped back from the grave, as it were. Though such puns are beneath us. About six feet beneath. As for who could be next, well ... Brando, Elvis, Marilyn, John Lennon, the other Lenin ... take your pick. (Oh, wait, hasn't that already happened?) But why stop at dead celebs? Let’s digitally remaster Paris and Britney while we’re at it. And can we please include their underwear and expand their vocabulary while we’re at it?
