Best Pitchman 

Marc Brown, Norton Furniture

The goal of all advertising is to be memorable, and Marc Brown succeeds, albeit in a weird way. Once you've seen one of his ads on late-night local TV, you'll have a hard time forgetting Brown's unnerving raspy voice or the life-sized mannequins of motorcycle cops and pirates that appear as set dressing. In a TV time slot dominated by clean-cut car salesmen who are over-the-top perky, Brown's slicked-back ponytail and subdued delivery make him refreshingly bizarre and uniquely memorable.
