“One squeeze tells you why people call us The Fresh Guys.”

Time to grab a few 70s mascots by the package and squeeze for freshness! It’s all on display in this spot for Wonder Bread from May of 1972.

I enjoyed these commercials when I was a younger human being. Anything animated with fun, cartoon voices worked for me.
