Casting Literary Pitchmen (and Pitchwomen)

Jason English

Ever wanted to turn a famous work of art into a print ad? Well, you just missed your chance. The deadline has passed, but you can still head over to and see the gallery.

I feel like a tease, getting your hopes up like that. So let's try this: pick any product, then pick any character from any book to be your product's pitchman.

To start us off, I'll pick Lennie from Of Mice and Men. He can chase the Energizer Bunny around the Salinas Valley in an award-winning series of TV spots.  Lennie could also work for Trix.
