Eating and drinking in the late 70s is our tenuous theme today. First, enjoy a classic Hebrew National hot dogs spot featuring “Uncle Sam” that ran for a good few years.
After that, take in an Ovaltine Hot Cocoa Mix commercial that will remind you of A Christmas Story (although this predates the film by a good few years.) Both spots aired in January of 1979 but were produced in 1978 or earlier.
Classic Hebrew National Hot Dogs Commercial (1979)
In the early 1970s, one of the world’s greatest actors signed on to star in a series of US-only commercials for the Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera. Here now, are two of those spots featuring the esteemed Laurence Olivier.
The first spot aired in October of 1973. The second aired in November of 1974.
Our sister site (aka my other seventies website), Cherry Stereo is celebrating its first birthday today!
If you have an interest in the well-known and lesser-known recording artists of the 1970s you should find something to enjoy just about every day. Musicians featured in the past week include; Black Sabbath, Elvis Presley, Kraftwerk, The Stylistics, and Nazareth. I’d love to have you join in the fun. Head on over and bookmark that Stereo!
