Gus Fuss

The Pennsylvania Lottery is dropping the Gus the Groundhog commercials, and I don't get the weeping and wailing.

The concept was cute, but I thought the execution was poor.  The puppet was creepy and the commercials had a cheap look and feel.  A junior high kid, with a Commodore 64 could have done a better job, and for a lot less money.

Let's hope they come up with something better, but knowing the state's track record, I don't have a great deal of optimism.

Gus the Groundhog was eight years old.
