While broadcasting at Louisville's #FandomFest, I stumbled into the actor Billy Krank who plays the son of Ernest P. Worrell (a goofy 80s TV pitchman created by the late Jim Varney). Only after posting the photo online did readers notice the nearly naked figure in the background. The guy at FandomFest said he was Princess Leia. I apologize for ruining your childhood memories.
Lexington native Jim Varney tickled the funny bones of millions through his career as an actor, comedian, musician, and commercial pitchman. He was most famous for his TV commercials where he played the annoying neighbor Ernest P. Worrell, constantly intruding on the never-seen neighbor "Vern." Here is a terrific reel of classic commercials and bloopers from those commercial shoots. The commercial character launched Varney into a series of silly theater movies based on the premise of "Ernest Goes To..." Jim Varney died in 2000 at age 50 but Ernest lives on.
