The Grinch

I saw this Grinch on a corner advertising Christmas trees.  It was funny because I was taking pics from the car and there was some guy talking to the Grinch and taking pics of him also.  He was probably from a  local paper.  Anyway, I find this Grinch even more scary than the Grinch in the movie.  What do you think about him?

That is an especially sinister looking Grinch. I'm not sure if he would attract me to the Christmas tree lot. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is still my favorite cartoon of the season. One of my cats is named after a character in the show.

I love how the photographer captured the photographer.

Haha ~ he does look a little scary but oh how I love that movie! Both the cartoon and the one with Jim Carey! It's a classic!

Fun photos.

my nickname at Christmas is Grinch, but I have never watched the movie, just seen it advertised. I don't watch animated anything. i thought the grinch was a sign in the first shot, then i see it is a costume. i amwith SQ would not attract me to the tree lot. i saw a tree at Walmar for 34 dollars, a live one and my grinch self kicked in.... had no idea what trees cost now

He does look a little menacing, doesn't he? Too cute though! I bet a lot of people stop and look and I'm sure that's the intent for the advertising!

Makes you wonder how hot he could be in that costume too!

He looks quite scary to me! I didn't see the movie so I can't compare.

You're right, he IS scarier!!! I would use a more inviting character to sell something. I think he would put a lot of people off!!
