So long, Robert Jarvik, we hardly knew ye



Poor Mr. Robert Jarvik. I can’t call him Dr. Robert Jarvik, because he’s not actually licensed to practice medicine. Pfizer just pulled a Lipitor spot in which he wore a white lab coat and later appeared to row a small boat. Jarvik actually used a “stunt double” for the rowing scene. I can only hope he found the coat-wearing scene somewhat less taxing. I wish I could use a “stunt blogger” here on AdFreak, for days when I just don’t feel like writing, you know? Anyway, my advice to the folks at Pfizer is to take a few aspirin and chill until the whole thing blows over.
