Fathead returns with more giant comedy

I may never actually buy a Fathead, one of those life-size, peel-and-place graphics of sports and entertainment stars (no matter how much my father-in-law would love a Papelbon). But the ads, by Wieden + Kennedy, are amusing. The latest one, which broke this weekend, features a 1,400-pound fire-breathing Kodiak bear dressed up in a triple-XXL-size Brian Urlacher jersey, and a deadpan spokesman who, in his rapture, begins rhyming about all the “Hall of Famers, ex-gamers, QB sackers, revitalized Packers” you can choose from. The earlier ads were good, too—the ones with the guy taking Fathead photos with the giant camera.
