“You won’t want to wear them all the time – but you could.”
Football and fashion go together like…well, not a whole lot. Nevertheless, I’ve got two commercials for you today from October of 1972 featuring just that.
First up, Bob Griese of the Miami Dolphins (my childhood favorite team despite growing up in L.A.) in a spot for Sears slacks. Second, Fran Tarkenton of the Minnesota Vikings for Arrow shirts. Quarterback style on view. Go long!
“British Airways takes more care of you in the sky above and on the earth below.”
A pair of flight-related commercials today. First we have actor Robert Morley in one of the many spots he appeared in for British Airways. This one, featuring a hot air balloon, aired in September of 1978.
After that, a historic spot from Eaton Electronics featuring the Space Shuttle. This one aired in January 1979 and was likely produced in ’78. Take off, eh?
“Inside – a tiny, thinking computer plays like a team of pros.”
Back in March, I posted a spot for Mattel Electronics Football handheld. Here now, are two more spots in the Mattel Electronics line-up; Basketball and Baseball. The Basketball spot aired in December of 1978, the Baseball spot in July of ’79.
