Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Circus Liquor Sign


Nothing like using a clown to sell inebriates to get a kid revved up for adulthood. This 26 foot high sign has been a landmark in North Hollywood, CA., featured in enough movies to get a horse drunk. I’m happy whenever I drive by it but still think mixing an icon of childhood with liquor probably happened because the store owner was drunk when he thought of it.

    The look on its face always reminded me of some demonic “clown of bondage and torture” from Twilight Zone.
