“When Lipton blows the whistle – you’re gonna have some great iced tea!”

Happy Summer Monday all! Let’s start the week off with a pair of Lipton spots. First, the kettle whistle blows and it’s time to drop what you’re doing and start chilling up a glass of iced tea.

Second, a faux cooking show (a Galloping Gourmet take-off perhaps?) with a Cup-a-Soup presentation. “Beef-Flavor Noodle” anyone? Both commercials aired in May of 1972.
