The company that owns the rights to the The Three Stooges have a few examples on their website of ad campaigns that have used the characters. Some of them are actually quite clever.
Start with footage of Moe poking Curly’s eyes. Then have Curly shilling safety goggles.
That’s really funny, I don’t know why I didn’t think of that. Of course if I ever bring up the topic again, I will have
