Mr. Clean Is A Black Man
Looks like America’s favorite bald, cleaning mascot got some melanin.
The cartoon ambassador for Mr. Clean is now a real life Black man.
Mike Jackson beat out scores of would-be Mr. Cleans to land the prized position.
“It’s definitely a dream come true to become the next Mr. Clean,” Jackson said in a statement issued by P&G. “While it’s impossible to replace the iconic Mr., I’m excited for this opportunity to help people tackle the most seemingly impossible messes while he’s away … and have some fun!”
P&G’s associate brand director North America said of his new Mr. Clean rep,
“Mr. Clean has been tough on grease and grime for 60 years, and we’re confident that Mike has what it takes. We had so many great entries in #TheNextMrClean contest, and we are very thankful for everyone’s enthusiasm and participation.”
