Remember? "Raymond J. Johnson"

"Raymond J. Johnson"
"You can call me Ray or you can call me Jay but You Doesn't Has To Call Me Johnson..." :lol:
Everybody, this is actor Bill Saluga doing his somewhat famous "Raymond J. Johnson" character; a character that was essentially what one would call a short lived "meme" now, but on TV in the late 70's, early 80's. His fame was very, very brief as basically this was really the character's only bit. It was somewhat amusing/annoying and Mr. Saluga was showing up everywhere for a brief moment of time on TV in commercials, sketch comedy shows, sitcoms, talk shows, variety shows, etc. Think the Simpsons episode where Bart becomes "The I Didn't Do It Boy." It was funny for a minute, and I'm sure the guy made a little bank, but it was gone as quick as it came. This video appears to be Mr. Saluga donning the character and his signature clothes for an encore later in life. And yes, the character is referenced in both The Simpsons and in King of the Hill.
