Mr. Clean's Makeover Is Creeping Us All Out (VIDEO)

Is there a cleaning product to remove this image from our brains?

Mr. Clean did need a bit of a makeover -- he always had a bit of a "Right Said Fred" look that was about two paces behind the times. But did he have to go in a "Yul Brynner meets Polar Express" direction? We can all agree that this style of animation, when applied to human characters, is unsettling.

Especially when it's a child. A child version of Mr. Clean.

Thanks to the helpful Redditors who pointed it out, I can't get this image out of my head. It'll haunt my dreams forever.

Watch the video above (which gives us an unnecessary backstory for Mr. Clean), to see it all in motion.
