Michael Jackson Pepsi ad exec's North Haven house for sale
The North Haven property belonging to the advertising executive who did the Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial in which the late pop star's hair caught on fire has just gone on the market for $18 million.
Property records show that the five-bedroom, 6.5-bath waterfront house belongs to the late Philip Dusenberry and his wife, Susan. Dusenberry died in 2007 of lung cancer.
Hamptons architect Peter Cook, the ex-husband of Bridgehampton supermodel Christie Brinkley, designed the house.
There is a separate 5.1-acre parcel being offered. If not sold with the house, it will be put on the market for $7 million.
The 6,800-square-foot, two-story, traditional-style house overlooks Sag Harbor harbor and Great Pond.
Cee Scott Brown, David Bray and Jack Pearson of The Corcoran Group are the listing agents. None of them could be reached for comment.
Dusenberry came up with many legendary ad slogans throughout his career, including General Electric’s “We Bring Good Things to Life” and Pepsi’s “The Choice of a New Generation.” He also co-wrote “The Natural” with Robert Redford. He was once named one of the 20th century’s 100 most influential advertising figures.
