This oddity was created by Mark Cline in 2022, using a mold made from a 1960s Muffler Man, and the customized with wing-and-sauce accessories. The Frankenstein's monster stitches in his head may be a tribute to "Svengoolie," a Chicago-area TV horror movie host who often used Berwyn as a running gag on his show.
