“Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, and a sesame seed bun.”

Here we find a December 1974 spot for McDonald’s featuring the well-known Big Mac jingle. Gordon Jump (of WKRP in Cincinnati fame) makes an appearance. Sing along. It ain’t hard to do.

“Here’s one answer to high food prices.”

Hello, Bionic friends. Let’s move on to a 1974 theme this week. Here’s one for a product I remember lurking in my family’s 1970s kitchen cabinet – Carnation Instant Breakfast.

The spot aired in March of 1974. Mix it with milk and drink it down.

“You can get more out of it, ’cause you can get more into it.”

We’re closing out 1972 week with two spots for Plymouth. First, we have a snappy red Space Duster and a few roommates moving into a new pad.

Second, a commercial featuring the Satellite Sebring Plus for ’73. The spokesperson looks (and especially sounds) familiar, but I can’t place his name. Your help is appreciated. Both spots aired in October 1972.

Is life passing you by? Get rollin’, go bowling! That’s good advice from the National Bowling Council in the spot from October 1972 found below.

Have a good weekend. Go bowling.

“Give chassis tube problems the boot – with XL-100.”

I think I’ll let my YouTube description describe this spot as it does so in a succinct manner:

“RCA XL-100 solid state television set commercial featuring a tiny spokesman with a voice that resembles Tony Randall.”

Spot aired in October 1972. That is all. Please enjoy.
