The inspiration for Jimmy McMillan's look

If you need explanation beyond this graphic:

Jimmy M. has a very unique style, but like a lot of fresh and new-seeming things, it derives a lot from the brave adventurers that came before it.

  • Jimmy owes a lot to Hulk, who maybe pioneered and certainly helped popularize the straightened- in-the-back mullet. Thanks to Hulk, this slicked back/down style makes you look like you mean business.
  • Additionally, a debt of gratitude is owed to Ambrose Burnsides here, Rhode Island governor, senator, and Rich Influential Person Who Is Mostly Remembered For His Outlandish Facial Hair.

  • Thirdly, balls. On his chin.
