Now talk about creepy. Come on! This is way worse than the BK one….how they started using him as a figurehead in the first place amazes me. Reply Antonio June 22nd, 2009 Lol he just looks creepy. The doll is fine, but he just looks creepy. Reply Yasmin July 11th, 2009 It was a simpler time back then. All it took was $1.00 plus tax to ensure a childhood riddled with nightmares and a consequently disturbed lifetime. Now it takes divorce, broken homes, domestic abuse and several screenings of theï»¿ movie Gigli…aw shucks, kids these days.
