Risë: DOUBLE-TOUGH SOCKS FOR A DOUBLE-TOUGH GUY! I'M RISË JILL MILLER.First Bob Dylan on the Victoria's Secret commercial, then Bruce Hornsby licenses his song to Lowe's Home Improvement... and now Mr. T is the next to go.
MEN AND BOYS WHO ARE TOUGH ON SOCKS HAVE ONE BIG COMPLAINT: HOLES IN THE HEEL AND TOES. NOW HANES, THE NUMBER-ONE SOCK BRAND IN THE U-S, HAS INVENTED "DOUBLE TOUGH" SOCKS; WITH DOUBLE THICK YARN IN THE HEEL AND TOES WHERE IT COUNTS.
TO INTRODUCE DOUBLE-TOUGH SOCKS, HANES FOUND A DOUBLE-TOUGH GUY: STAR OF "ROCKY 3" AND "THE A-TEAM"; THE ONE AND ONLY MISTER T!
Mr. T: "Mr. T and Hanes are here to sock it to you with real toughness! If you want to be tough, you've got to walk tough! And the only way to walk tough is to wear Hanes Double Tough Socks! No more holes for Mr. T! I pity the fools with holes in their socks!"
MR. T IS SOCKING IT TO CHICAGO BY GIVING OUT HANES DOUBLE TOUGH SOCKS TO EVERYONE AT FRIDAY'S RED SOX/WHITE SOX GAME; AND THROWING THE CEREMONIAL FIRST PITCH TO WHITE SOX AND FORMER RED SOX CATCHER CARLTON FISK.
Talk about disillusioning -- it seems like all the entertainment industry is about is making money...
