Lenny Jaeger was a dealer in Arkansas... And he was "Black Max".   He would be nearly 80yrs old this year.  I knew he was a real person, but just grabbed a little info off the internet and posted it below.
Tom

Lenny Jaeger, aka Black Max, was the owner of Oakland Marine, in Mountain Home, Arkansas, where Mercury was performing a photo shoot, and Lenny was used to drive a couple boats. They rest, as they say...is history. Lenny is still is alive and well, enjoying life with his many kids, grandkids & great grandkids, living just down the road, from his old original Oakland Marine.

Mercury Marine's Stars;  "Lenny Jaeger"

This guy just had too much credibility, like someone who might make sense when he spoke, like a mechanical engineer or similar type with whom communication is harder than with the dead. They should have used Captain Morgan and three wenches.

Lenny Jaeger got his start with Mercury by chance. He happened to be there when the advertising guys needed someone to drive a boat for them. They liked him, how he handled himself and the boat and offered him a job. He knew motors (having had worked on them and owned many) and knew how to handle a boat. He traveled all over the US and into Canada with Mercury doing advertising for them. He got to know the racing team and many of the guys who worked for Mercury. Filmed commercials on the Gulf and had fun doing it. It was his profile that was on the original Black Max outboards said Christine
