“Meet the Plymouth Arrows for ’78.”

Two spots for Plymouth today. First up, William Christopher (M*A*S*H) and Richard Kline (Three’s Company) appear in a spot for Volaré. If you can identify the third actor, who looks familiar, but I just can’t place him, please let me know.

After that, a spot for the Plymouth Arrow featuring a jingle version of Harry Nilsson’s “Me and My Arrow.” Both commercial aired in April of 1978.

“When Lipton blows the whistle – you’re gonna have some great iced tea!”

Happy Summer Monday all! Let’s start the week off with a pair of Lipton spots. First, the kettle whistle blows and it’s time to drop what you’re doing and start chilling up a glass of iced tea.

Second, a faux cooking show (a Galloping Gourmet take-off perhaps?) with a Cup-a-Soup presentation. “Beef-Flavor Noodle” anyone? Both commercials aired in May of 1972.
