The Silverman by Johanne Brunet

This is Goggleman’s buddy! Both had been hired to walk around the Festival Place at the Montreal Jazz Fest, and entertain people making the crowds smile and laugh.

I wonder how they could tolerate all that silver makeup under a blazing sun at 35°C!

    omg this guy reminds me of the Viagra commercial. lmao

  • I had not seen that commercial and I just searched the net to see what it might be. Would it be the one where this man has blue horn coming out of his head, which then morph into a blue V?
