I guess if someone decided to do an impersonation of one of my loved ones who passed away I might be a little ticked off as well. AT&T has been airing commercials in the Chicago area with Caray's likeness and Dutchie Caray is none to happy....
Dutchie Caray is furious with AT&T over television commercials featuring comic John Caponera pitching cable TV while impersonating the late Harry Caray.You have to see the video on this because I love the telephone wire part. In other news the impressionist was pretty spot on with his take on Caray....
"I just get shivers when I even think about it," she told WGN-Ch. 9 on Monday morning.
"I was gone the whole month of March and I didn't come back until a couple of days ago. ... It made me so sick and disgusted. ... What they did [was] so unprofessional, so jerky. ... I might make an AT&T commercial, wrap myself in telephone wire, ughl-ughl-ughl and act like an idiot dope."
