Maytag Repairman Nominated for Induction into Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame- CLICK HERE!

Now here is some fun and interesting appliance related news!

The Maytag Repairman has recently been nominated for the Madison Avenue
Advertising Walk of Fame in New York City.

The Maytag Repairman, the longest running real-life advertising character in American history, is competing for the honor along with 25 other famed icons.

Established in 1967, the Maytag Repairman has become an iconic marketing figure. The current character is played by Clay Jackson. The character first appeared on American TV screens in 1967.

Jackson is one of only four people to portray the Maytag Repairman since its creation: Jesse White retired from the role in 1988 after playing the part for 21 years; Gordon Jump retired in 2003 after starring in the role for 15 years; and Hardy Rawls took Jump's place in 2003 and played the part through 2007.

The winner of the contest will be announced Sept. 22 at a press conference at 10 a.m. EDT on the corner of 42nd and Madison Avenue. The program is conducted by Advertising Week in partnership with the Advertising Icon Museum, which opens in 2009 in Kansas City, MO, U.S.
