So very noble.
(Kraft commercial, 1972)
“The noblest Caesar of them all.”
Coming in late and just under the wire, I have a Sunday commercial for you. It’s one for Kraft Golden Caesar salad dressing and you can pour these 30 seconds right onto your evening salad and enjoy.
The spot aired in May of 1972. Don’t forget the croutons!

Previously on 70s Spots: Holiday Inn ‘Surprise!’ (1975)
Nice marquee. I wonder how many are left around the globe.
“The best surprise – is no surprise.”
I hope everyone in the US and Canada is enjoying a relaxing, extended Labor day weekend. The following Holiday Inn commercial may help calm your nerves during your time off.
The spot aired in November of 1975 and the actor playing the “Surprise!” hotel clerk appears to be James “Big Fig Newton” Harder.

Previously on 70s Spots: Peek Freans Cookies (1979)
Harold, they’re at the cookies again!
“Peek Freans are a very serious cookie.”
Peek Freans? I had never heard of such a thing before coming across this commercial. I don’t think we had access to these treats growing up in California in the Seventies.
The spot below aired in February of 1979 and is kind of fun and also a little bit strange. What with the funky name and miniature children and all. Have a look.

Can you smell the April Freshness?
“Softens. Freshens. Helps rinse out static cling.”
Here’s another one of those judgemental Downy fabric softener “April Fresh” commercials from 1977. This one aired in June of ’77.
