This time around on 70s Spots we feature some nifty 70s-era TV commercials from outside of the United States. Whether or not you’re familiar with the products on offer – the ads are fun and bring back memories of the decade.

First, we have a spot from Italy for Jean’s West pantaloni featuring some wicked cool skateboarding and feathered hair. If the YouTube comments (and my internet searches) are correct, the ad features skateboarder Ed Nadalin and was shot in Rome in 1978.

The second spot on display is a slightly trippy animated commercial from Canada for Lowney’s Cherry Blossom chocolate. You’ll like this one. The animation will remind you of Levi’s & 7-Up ads from the same era. Unwrap it below.
