Klaus Nomi advertising Jägermeister

In addition to being an accomplished pastry chef, German New Wave opera singer from outer space, Klaus Nomi, was also a spokesperson for Jägermeister, the German cough medicine and working class aperitif.

Nomi’s face appeared on one side of a cardboard “table tent” distributed to bars that read:

“I’m drinking German Jägermeister because that’s my kind of girl over there.”

Here’s the other side of the table tent:
