“The quality pipe tobaccos of America.”

Time for the Saturday 70s Spot. Here we find George Burns, enjoying a great resurgence of popularity in the 1970s, shilling for Sir Walter Raleigh pipe tobacco. Burns was known for his cigar smoking so it’s a bit strange seeing him with a pipe, but that’s part of the mild humor in this spot. Light it up.
