Willy the Hillbilly was the long running mascot for Mountain Dew who you might have seen recently on the packaging for Mountain Dew Throwback. What you might not know is that he had a long history as the spokes-billy of Mountain Dew. Willy and his cohorts are crazily stereotypical, but I always thought that they were a heck of a lot of fun to watch in these old commercials.
Plus they are educational, I have been drinking other sodas before going shooting and I have always chalked my horrible performance to dumb luck. Of course, it is my lack of Mountain Dew!
