That guy: part two


As promised, here's another look at That Guy. You'll find him on Cumberland Street, near the Yorkville shopping area. I scoured the internet and found a little more information about him and his creator, artist William McElcheran. Apparently, "that guy" is also known as "the businessman"; you can find different incarnations of him in cities around Canada and even the world! I'd love to see his incarnation in Pisa, I wonder if VP could be persuaded to venture over there and show us a shot?

PS: Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers. Eat some stuffing for me!

I will be happy to accommodate you and eat another portion of stuffing, just for you. I'd better be careful though because I do not want to rival "that guy" in size.

I think "Businessman" suits him better! Thanks for link, I looked him up.

Reminds me of Rob Ford.

It looks like he could lose a little weight. Might feel better about himself.

Wishing you a great Thanksgiving! (Are you celebrating Thanksgiving?)

Such an expressive statue!

I love the expression on his face. He looks like he's either ready to cry or start shaking his fist at the sky. Or maybe he's just mentally counting off his to-do list for the day.

Very cool! I think Botero would love this fat guy! :-)

VP said...

I will set up an expeditionary force to Pisa, but we must be careful: they are still angry for the province thing!

There is a cool one of him on a horse at St Mike's (at U of T)!

I absolutely love this sculpture.

I love this guy! But I don't think I can explain what appeals to me about him. Maybe it is the Willy Loman or Babbitt effect . . . just a guy.

I would have eaten some stuffing for you if I saw this post earlier, but not now. I don't want to eat any more food for at least a week!

Great sculpture and reminds me of the family of four in front of Les Halles in Paris. It has been temporarily relocated while the area is being renovated.

I am stuffed from all the food delicacies of Thanksgiving... we ran, we played, we ate...

Bises,
Genie

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
