Being from Illinois, I grew up with that guy on the commercials. :-(

Sad. Also being from Illinois, that jingle is like an earworm and every time I see the words Empire Carpet, I want to recite the phone #.

I'm from Massachusetts and can hear the jingle in my mind right now. Ditto on the phone #.

I am also from Illinois and I can remember those commercials from long, long ago. I guess he is now in that great "Empire" in the sky.

RIP. Though I never bought a carpet from you, or anyone.

The Chicago area has the best commercials/jingles.
