On the Bus, With an Apple on His Head ... Chris Daly?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 20, 2010 at 6:30 AM

Our devoted readers may remember the day we ran into Gerard Depardieu on the Muni. Well, not really. But, seriously, check it out: That's more than a passing resemblance.

In much the same way, we thought we saw Supervisor Chris Daly guest-starring in an ad for the city's health care program (and so did the people sitting near us). I'd love to share a bus ride with Daly; if anyone's going to stand up to the ingrate spitting sunflower seeds on the seats and floor, it would be him.

Here's the ad:


And here's the real Daly:


Incidentally, we phoned Daly's office to ask if he's been moonlighting as the nose, eyes, and red apple for an in-house city ad. Legislative aide April Veneracion said he has not -- so far as she knows.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
