Messy Marvin

Anybody remember these ads for Hershey?  They're pretty innocuous.  But man, what a cultural impact.  Most people my age...they see someone messy...and the first name they think of is "Messy Marvin".  If I had a dollar for every time I called my own kids "Messy Marvin" when they made a mess and didn't clean it up...  And honestly, do you know anyone born after 1990 named "Marvin"?  I would guess most moms and dads avoided the name so their kids wouldn't be teased with "Messy Marvin". 

And that's Peter Billingsley as Messy Marvin.
