  1. I live in College Station, just up the road from Houston so we get the Houston TV stations. When Mack first started airing his commercials, they were of a poor quality so Mack looked like he had a green colored tinge to his skin. My mother would see him in these early commericals in which she noticed that he had a green palor, so she would loudly announce that he had cancer, maybe liver cancer. Then every time his commercials came on after that she would see them then she would say, “Is he still alive? I swear… with his cancer I thought he’d be dead by now. Or does he get up from his coffin and come do his commercials? … LOL” My mother was quite the humorous character.
