Ever wonder what it's like to be recognized or identified as a character on a TV Commercial?  Well, Kurtis has had to deal with this a bit as a result of his role as "Stan" from the ubiqitous (and annoying) "creditreport.com" commercials. (You know the ones... lazy construction worker 'Stan' gets a fair deal from a credit reporting company... insert joke here.)  Well, we thought we'd go waaay back to the mid 1980's and one of the most massive commercial flops in advertising history - the Burger King "Where's Herb?"ad campaign featuring "Herb," the only man in the world to never taste a Burger King Burger. We'll be joined by actor Jon Menik - "Herb" of that infamous campaign.  Jon will discuss what it's like to land a nationwide gig like that, what the massive campaign entailed, and what you do after the commercials stop airing.  Bringing you the absolute worst in burger franchise advertising and web talk radio... guaranteed!
