The flyer distribution man was a man who roamed the streets of Gaoling handing out flyers to advertise Master Yu's Earthbending Academy. He wore a pair of pale green trousers and a light blue shirt with a dark blue trim without sleeves. His rather voluminous brown hair fell down to his shoulders on the back. He had a mustache and goatee.
This man was hired to advertise Master Yu's Earthbending Academy. He was seen in the background when Sokka was deciding whether or not to buy an expensive green bag. At that moment, the flyer distribution man seemed quite unsuccessful; he attempted to address a passer-by, but the man walked away without giving him any attention. The flyer distribution man then went in the same direction as Team Avatar. Shortly afterwards, he noticed Aang and Katara and asked them if they liked earthbending and told them to "check out Master Yu's Earthbending Academy", before handing over a flyer with a broad smile. He left immediately after giving Aang the flyer.
