crazy


If you grew up around the Tri-State area, then this guy needs no introduction. For well over ten years, he was the spokesman for electronics chain Crazy Eddie. His name is Jerry Carroll, and his persona while reading the Crazy Eddie ads was...well, crazy. His stare was maniacal, his voice boomed, he flailed his arms about, and we loved it! This image personified the Crazy Eddie name just as the Antar family duo (father Sam and son Eddie) had intended. These tv spots were a hallmark of New York City area television throughout the late '70s and well into the '80s.

And his prices are.....INSANE!!!!!
