OJ Simpson Wants To Sell You Something

With OJ back on trial (or is it over already?) some of us are old enough to remember when the football great was a respected advertising pitchman, his most famous TV ads were for Hertz Rent-A-Car ("Hertz puts you in the driver's seat"). This is the most memorable spot where OJ is seen running down the airport concourse (to catch that flight to Chicago?) and jumping in line.

He also appeared in print ads for Dingo Boots found in comic books of the late-1970s, the ad is pretty funny all by itself.

I don't know where this parody came from, I got years ago - it's hilarious but don't read it if you're easily offended!
