Proctor & Gamble is running a commercial tribute to the late Dick Wilson, who served as the company's spokesman, Mr. George Whipple, in their Charmin bathroom tissue ads. His most famous line, said in every blipvert, was "Please don't squeeze the Charmin."

The ad will run through at least this week and it contains clips from several of his appearances in the commercials, which numbered about 500 in all.

A spokesman for the company said, "Dick Wilson meant a lot to the Charmin brand. He's a big part of the reason Charmin is the country's best-selling bathroom tissue. So it was always in our minds that we'd do this tribute."

The picture at the top of this post is of three frames from the commercial tribute, as is the picture of Mr. Whipple.....
