McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish Fish Found Dead in West Hollywood Apartment

“Frankie the Fish”—the singing salesfish for the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich—was found dead early Thursday morning in his West Hollywood, Calif., apartment. TMZ is reporting that Frankie was seen late Wednesday night making a "Dollar Menu" run after hanging at swank Hollywood nightclub The Viper Room with Ashley Olsen, Steve-O, and Pete Doherty. Frankie skyrocketed to fame in 2009 largely due to a wildly popular series of Lenten Filet-O-Fish sandwich commercials. He also starred in several independent films including This Fish's Life and Don't Worry, Be Happy: The Story of Big Mouth Billy Bass. His school, which resides in a pond outside of Morton, Miss., has asked for privacy as they mourn their loss. Frankie was three years old.

"What if it were you hanging up on that wall, if it were you in that sandwich, you wouldn't be laughing at all."

No one is laughing today. RIP Frankie.
