We all know Mr. Sparkle as a joint venture of Matsumura Fishworks and Tamaribuchi Heavy Manufacturing Concern that banishes dirt to the land of wind and ghosts. But it is also the premier window cleaning service for homes and businesses in the greater Fargo, ND-Moorhead, MN area. Seriously:
Obviously the website doesn’t contain any likeness or drawings that might be legally actionable, but let there be no doubt about the name:
The name “Mr. Sparkle” is a famous reference to “The Simpsons” (it was the name of a mysterious Japanese cleaning product on the show). Is that how that came about?
Yes, it is. I’m a big “Simpsons” fan, and when we created our list of names, Mr. Sparkle was one of the names on there, and my wife said, “You’re not using that name.” As we kept eliminating names, it kept rising up to the top, and finally it was the last name.
On the FAQ page, part of the response to the question “What do you do when you come to my house?” sounds like a vaguely sexual boast, or at the very least yet another euphemism for masturbation, and is all the better for it:
You just need to sit back and enjoy the sparkle!
But please, don’t believe them, observe this customer testimonial:
Now I have a great sparkle!
For lucky best wash, use Mr. Sparkle.
