Becky Queen of Carpet: From Excreting Dogs to Exploding Heads

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 11:44 AM

This week's feature, "Pitch Sessions," revisits the quirky, self-produced local TV ads from the 1980s and 90s.

Becky "Queen of Carpet" Rothman busted out of the advertising gate 20 years ago riding on the crazy horse. (Check out her rad YouTube channel). And she's still galloping along. Recently, her head exploded.  Behold her advertising evolution...or should we say, revolution?
