No.  Not creepy.  What about singers that have passed on and they are still playing their songs?


@lmtep 

 

Playing a song recorded by someone thats deceased is totally different than a person that's dead saying things like  "Isn't this a beautiful morning, can't ask for a better sunrise than that and going on and on like that person is having a current conversation....(very different than lyrics to a song) this is more like they are speaking from BEYOND THE GRAVE thats CREEPY............

@SPURT - Totally agree - especially after he sold the company & he said that they didn't want him to be their spokesman anymore as he was too old.

I also find it a bit creepy.,..the first time I saw it I actually froze, because I knew he'd been dead a long time!

 

To me it gives the impression that the products haven't changed at all in quality or ingredients since Jimmy founded the company.  Whether or not that's true...?   His company is owned by Tyeson now.

@GoneButNotForgotten  No creepier than movies with dead actors.

Re: Jimmy Dean commercials----eeeeeeeew!

Unless you are a person of a certain age, very few young folk have even heard of Jimmy Dean, and couldn't care less that 'ol  J.D. is dead and gone and has been for quite awhile.

 

 

The commercial doesn't bother me in the slightest.

 

 

I figure using his voice is a tribute to him.

 

 

 

It's no different than watching a movie or tv show that has a deceased actor in it, or listening to music of  someone who has passed away.

I find "Quacker Factory by Jeanne Bice" creepy.  Like she is in heaven merrily designing away.  I don't think so.  I also get weary of hearing how she wanted to wear jeans so she invented a new fabric.  It's no wonder customers leave in droves.  These stories get very old.  I no longer watch.

Not really. My Daddy knew Jimmy Dean (not close friends, but they hung out in honky tonks) and I have a picture of them together (I do believe they are drunk in the photo but happy). I've noticed that they have another set of commercials using a female voice instead of Jimmy Deans'.

 

I've seen a few commercials using old footage of the Colonel (black and white) when he was traveling across the South advertising his chain and the chicken/food he sold. 

 

Considering commercials use all sorts of music by dead artists as well as their voices, I don't see the issue with Jimmy Dean. Btw, LOVE JD sage sausage!

 

Edited for spelling.
