70s Spots: American Express (Jack Nicklaus) & Atari (Chuck McCann) (1977)

Let’s assume that’s not really Nicklaus’ card number…

“Man does not live by golf alone.”

Two commercials from late 1977 to enjoy today. First, we have one from October ’77 for American Express. Golf champ Jack Nicklaus stars and the theme is tennis. A clever twist!

After that, a spot for the Atari Video Computer System (these days, better known as a “console”). Chuck McCann (Far Out Space Nuts) stars in this one from December of ’77.
