After two short seasons as the mascot for Six Flags theme parks, the commercial star regarded as a wild success for its cult following is being retired by new Six Flags owner Dan Snyder.
Snyder opted to discontinue the popular commercials after citing a focus on attracting families rather than teenagers. Snyder believes that the Mr. Six commercials had the largest impact on teenagers, while families should be the primary target of ads due to general financial superiority.
Mr. Six provided Six Flags with some of the most successful commercials in the United States by dancing to the tune of "We Like to Party" by the Vengaboys. Six Flags introduced the slogan "It's Playtime" as part of the advertising campaign encouraging potential guests to visit the parks in their free time.
The identity of the actor playing the aged man has yet to be revealed.
The Washington Redskins owner declared himself the new Six Flags CEO late last month, citing a 57% vote to oust current leaders of the world's largest theme park operator, a chain plagued with financial troubles in the past.
