“It’s two blades better.”

Last time on 70s Spots, we featured a Dr. Grabow pipe ad with Erin Gray. This time around, it seemed only appropriate to feature a commercial with Gray’s Buck Rogers in the 25th Century co-star, Gil Gerard.

Here’s Gerard in a December 1973 spot for Persona Double II razors.
