Mr Clean too dirty?

The IPKat's good friend and blogging colleague Frédéric Glaize has drawn his attention to an article published in Le Monde a week ago. This piece reports the tale of Pierre Chevalier, who had in the past portrayed "Mr Propre" (Mr Clean) for advertising purposes. M. Chevalier was told that his trailer was too dirty and must be moved. The trailer at stake has been parked on the camping of Parc des Roches in Saint-Chéron (Essonne) and had been left there since August by its owner. In November, Philippe Waver became the manager of the camping of Parc des Roches and wanted the trailer out, aiming at obtaining a fourth star for his camping. The bald actor told the journalist that the whole camping premises were closed and that the all other parking lots were as dirty as his.

The IPKat wonders whether this publicity will damage the goodwill in M. Chevalier's "Mr Clean" image, or whether it will open up fresh opportunities for diversity into areas in which cleanliness is not a merchandable commodity.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
