    Sy Sperling, former Hair Club for Men president, dies at age 78

    https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/sy-s...174255141.html

    Sy Sperling, the Hair Club for Men founder who famously reminded viewers that he wasn’t just the company’s president but “also a client,” has died, SouthFloridaReporter.com reports. His spokeswoman Terri Lynn confirmed to the Associated Press that Sperling died Wednesday in Boca Raton, Fla. following a lengthy illness. He was 78.

    Though he retired in 2000 after selling the Hair Club for Men to a private equity firm for $45 million, Sperling was a memorable television presence throughout the 1990s thanks to his commercials. The ads used Sperling’s own before-and-after transformation to tout Hair Club salons specializing in a hair weaving technique designed to restore hair.
    I remember seeing a lot of hair restoration TV ads as a kid in the '90s, but I can't say I remember this particular guy.

    Naw just put a drugged toy poodle on top of your head. If anyone asks say that your biracial to explain all of the curls.

    Notice: Be sure to pick the right color poodle.
