Six Flags' Fogy Flops

Remember that dancing old guy they shoved in this year's Six Flags commercials? How could you not?

The ads were ubiquitous. Were they also memorable? Sure. How about hilarious? Debatable. Irritating? Certainly. But the $64,000 question: Were the ads effective? Not so much.

While sales at other corporations' parks were up an average of about 2%, sales were flat or down at 12 of the 13 Six Flags parks this summer.

So the good news is, they'll retire the character and try something else, right? Fat chance. They promise he'll be back.

Of course, none of this matters to me, your humble writer. I skip these parks for one simple reason: I'm not taller than Tweety's wing, so I can't go on any of the cool rides.
