Michael Vale, the actor best known for his portrayal of the sleepy-eyed Dunkin’ Donuts baker who said “Time to make the doughnuts,” died on Saturday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. He was 83.
According to the Today Show, Dunkin Donuts placed a full page ad (that I haven’t seen yet) that stated, “He didn’t just make the donuts, he also made us smile” When’s the last time you heard about a company doing that? mmm…. donuts.
