Who is Mr. Six?
image This question comes from the hoax forum, where it's sparked quite a debate: what's the deal with that guy in the Six Flags ads? You know the one. The 'old dude' who looks like he's about 90-years-old but dances around maniacally like a 19-year-old. Is he really an old man? Or is he a young professional dancer dressed up as an old man? If you're not familiar with 'Mr. Six', then you can check out the commercials starring him at Six Flags' website. Apparently Six Flags is being swamped by requests to reveal the true identity of Mr. Six, but so far they're staying mum, evidently hoping to milk the interest in him for all it's worth. So here's a poll so that the public can vote on who they think Mr. Six really is:

I saw an episode of Stark Raving Mad where Tony Shalhoub, who was the main character (a writer) dressed up as an undertaker's helper and he looked JUST like Mr. Six. I believe that is who he is. Currently, Tony acts in a drama called MONK which I cannot get unless I want to pay more.

it's not the teacher, for one the guy in costume has a shaved head due to the makeup, the teacher has hair. I have heard he was a British Break Dancer, and never talks cause of his accent.

I can clear this all up for you because I am the REAL Mr. Six.

I am not a young dancer in makeup! I am a 97 year old man and my name is Augie. I have been dancing my ass off long before this crazy internet was invented.

I was discovered by an ad agency executive while wondering aimlessly through New York City. I was wearing only a KFC bucket and a pair of depends. I had recently crapped my diaper and was shaking wildly to loosen the poop smeared all over my butt. The more I wiggled, the worse it got. A cute young female ad executive saw my struggle and thought I was dancing. By this time, my bucket hat had fallen from my head and landed at my feet. It seems this sweetie thought I was dancing for money, when I was actually just trying to shake my poo loose. I think I may have been having a little bit of a stroke too.

She asked me if I was a professional dancer and I asked her to wipe the crap off of my legs and back. She walked me to a nearby fire hydrant and hosed me down (knocking me down and causing me to fly across 4 lanes of traffic by the way.) After pulling me out from under a taxi cab, she told me they were working on a commercial for Six flags and needed a dancing fool such as myself.

It was unfortunate that I chose that exact moment to take another crap, but at least this time I was standing nude on the street, so no wiping was needed. I negotiated a price of $2.35 per commercial and a new suit. The suckers fell for it and the rest is history.

AHAHAHHA you should do creative copy writing, "Mr. Six", no I jest .... for the final time he's a young guy, I work for the agency in question, Doner, if you doubt this look up in AD AGE we do the creative for Six its a $100 million dollar account, keep an eye out for MR. Six taking on Jackass. Once and for all he's a young guy, he might be from ny he might be from the uk, but seriously people get a life go raise money for poor kids, make a sandwich for the homeless, i would but on my meager salary I can't afford my own lunch.....

I thought I made it very clear that I am the real Mr. Six! What is wrong with you young people today? You're all a bunch of dirty long hair hippies! Get some jobs you rock and rollers!

I gotta go change my diaper.

I personally think he really is just an agile old man, though I'm willing to believe he's a young man in disguise.

Also, to those of you pretending to be Mr. Six: Get a life.

Thanks for the info, Alex!
Maybe I can find this before Halloween.
I'm setting up an elaborate `Alien' scene
with a full `Alien' mask and body suit,
after scaring the heck out of the kids,
I thought it'd be funny for that music
to suddenly come on, and ol' slimy `Alien'
to do the Mr. Six dance.

I dont realy care who he is because six flags rules and Mr. Six is god. When i get my licence i want to drive a bus just like his while listening to "We like to party" and traveling to all the six flags parks in America. When i stop for gas i will get out and dance like mr six and in the process i will recruit ne people to come on my six flags road trip. they will also dance. Long live Mr. Six.

Its Jaleel White the guy who played Steve Urkel... i know this for a fact because if you watch the episode of Family Matters where Laura Dreams of 75 years in the future where she is old and has a big butt..when steve walks in and is dressed as an old black man he look just like Mr Six only black...plus the dance moves are the same i mean no one else can pull off those moves as well as Jaleel White can

OMG I think that the conclusion I have made was that Mr. Six wether he's... 90 100 26 16 whatever age he is I got to admit he's pretty hot for an old guy!
Posted by LOLO  on  Thu Apr 21, 2005  at  07:32 PM
I work at Six Flags and I stair at this shmuck all day and the more you look at it, he looks to be an old man. Then again the make artists they have nowadays. Geez look at M. J. gulp snake

He looks a lot like David Kelly - an actor who played in Waking Ned Devine. See the URL:
