Bill and Hillary in Bad Boy Commercial

An old Bad Boy furniture commercial featuring Bill and Hillary Clinton?

The truth according to Wikipedia:
In 1993, Lastman saw Clinton impersonator Tim Waters on television, and shortly afterwards contacted him and arranged for a commercial to be shot. The commercial featured Waters dressed as Clinton delivering the classic Nooobody! line.

While merely a mildly amusing commercial to most of the viewing public, Lastman’s move did attract some attention, as he soon received a letter from the White House requesting that he “cease and desist all unauthorized use of the likeness of the President of the United States of America in advertising of commercial services and products”.

Lastman refused to stop airing the commercials, and even produced several more, featuring both Waters and a Hillary Clinton impersonator. “Last time I checked,” he later said, “this was Canada, not the 51st state.”

Welland Celebrates 150th Birthday

It’s a birthday wish that’s finally coming true: Welland’s Main Street Bridge will light up the sky Wednesday evening in recognition of the city’s 150th anniversary.

People are invited to Merritt Park to see the bridge light up at 9:30 p. m.

The idea of lighting up the bridge has been tossed around for years and was attempted a number of years ago, but the lighting then didn’t do it justice, said John Mastroianni, chairman of Heritage Welland.

But this year it has come to fruition with a $30,000 lighting investment from Niagara Region to draw attention to the bridge towers.

Welland Regional Coun. George Marshall said there was an attempt to take the towers down after the bridge became the Region’s responsibility. It may have been cheaper to do so, Marshall said, but it is such a landmark for the city that the towers are still standing.

The bridge was designated a historical landmark by Heritage Welland (formerly the Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee), and has been undergoing major renovations since 2006.

The bridge was built between 1927 and 1930, during the construction of the Fourth Welland Canal and was one of the three largest vertical lift bridges on the canal.
