I met this fellow hanging (literally) around the Saks Fifth Avenue store near me. He's on duty in the cosmetic department and he represents the Kiehl's cosmetic company. Is it just me or does it seem a bit strange to have a skeleton used as an advertising gimmick for a cosmetic company? A little sign explains that the original Mr. Bones resides in the Kiehl's flagship store in New York and he was used to "help educate on and demonstrate the causes and effects of various ailments." Hmmm...I'm not sure how he would demonstrate dry skin or an itchy scalp.
