Posted by Dave On August - 8 - 2008

In honor of getting a little honesty back in our lives here is a collection of the 12 best Leon commercials.

Note: At the bottom, read more about the actor who played Leon and subsequently was traded for 60 cases of beer. Seriously… Read the rest of this entry »
