Mustard Man is finally moving out of his parents' house. The French's mascot, born in Rochester, New York, and most recently living in Parsippany, N.J., has found a new home (and freedom from all that nagging) at the upcoming Advertising Icon Museum in Kansas City, Mo., which is slated to open in 2010. According to Amy Stern, a spokesperson for French's, the condiment manufacturer (with the help of art studio LifeFormations in Bowling Green, Ohio) created a sculpture of Mustard Man to be shipped to the museum because there weren't any extra soft-form suits to spare. The replica of the mascot was then brought next door for some model shots at Keith Meiser Photography. The images nicely capture Mustard Man's classic emotions: mildly interested, harrumph and yellow. Kansas City hot dogs better gird their buns in preparation for his arrival. Ketchup, watch out. Your days are numbered.
