How to Get Celebrity Endorsements — Even if You're Not a Huge Brand

Visual Description:  Celebrity endorsement.

RUSEH  =  USHER,  OPRDO  =  DROOP,  NAREBT  =  BANTER,  XTCEEI  =  EXCITE   —   Giving us:  USHDOOBTEXITE

Clue/Question:  They wanted to put George Foreman’s name on a grill, so they thought – – –

Celebrity Endorsement Deals With Insane Payouts

Answer:  OUTSIDE THE BOX

(Because . . . having George Foreman on the inside of the box makes absolutely no sense!  LOL!  I’ve been hearing this expression – think outside of the box – since sometime in the 1980s.  It comes from management consultants, and it just means to think creatively, or unconventionally.  Sometimes the idea has plenty of merit, but other times you really want to stay within the box.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database . . . that only a very select few have access to!  I’ve been asked not to share it, so save yourself the trouble asking how to get it.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, although we have absolutely seen “xtceei” before.  The answer letter layout was a thirsty thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it was pretty challenging.  I was first going with HIS BOX, but that left me with UDOTETE.  When I swapped HIS for THE it left me with USDOTEI, and I saw the OUTSIDE.

Fun cartoon of some corporate types selling George on selling their product.  They came out about 27 years ago.  I know that we have one of those George Foreman Grills somewhere around here.  We even used it a time or two.  Meh.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I love my George Forman grill and use it often..salmon, burgers, bacon, gyro meat, etc. It works well.

    I am very disappointed to think that the grills were not George’s invention! It never crossed my mind that they weren’t!! It all seemed so personal..healthier food with the grease rolling away, the new twists to the grill that he came up with! He did such a good job of selling them. Say it isn’t so!!! 😱 LL
