    Is this guy for real? I was picking up my new Fisher Polycaster from the trucking company and I pull up to a light.. There sits this guy?

    This is no joke.. found on the internet picture. This guy is really sitting on Union Centre blvd in west chester in front of Bob Evans.

    His sign says Snow Removal with a phone number... Times are tough boys:) Personally.. i'd get a laugh out of actually plowing in the suit hahah

    To be honest I do not think 1 person took his # down, your average person is not thinking about snow right now. I could be wrong. I think its funny but not good marketing , well maybe if he stands there everyday even when it snows.

    My wife just called me and said she seen another guy across town doing the same thing. Interesting approach but it's unlikely it will score much business.

    That type of thing could work, Little Ceasars pizza often pulls me in with their dancing sign people.

    i think it is unique, and therefore worth trying, i don't think that it is going to get commercial customers, but think of all those little old ladies who think that is the most darling thing ever, it may work, but i don't know if i could live with myself doing that........(thats why there are employees)

    That's it... this is a punishment deal. That guy showed up late this morning to work.:) Jeff lewis on flipping out ( bravo tv show ) makes his assistant wear a bio suit for coming in late to work.

    They get an average of 3 to 5 calls per hour while "Frosty" is out there. They wouldn't say how many they convert to customers though.

    I mean it's unique. I have to credit them for doing something out of the ordinary?
