Ol' Lonely Trivia
Maytag's Ol' Lonely (the repairman no one ever calls) holds the record as "the longest running real life advertising character on network television." He was played by Jesse White for 22 years before Gordon Jump took over in 1989 until his death in 2003.
Maytag has since repositioned itself as "innovative" over the tired notion of "reliable."
