A double-whammy of celebrity goodness for you on this Easter Sunday. First, we find a very young and slim John Goodman for Mennen Skin Bracer. The spot aired in July of 1979.
Second, Jane Curtin (Saturday Night Live) appears in an August 1979 commercial for Hoover portable washer and dryers. Just a gut feeling here, but I’m thinking this commercial may have been produced a few years earlier (possibly ’74 or ’75) before Curtin found fame on SNL.
Two commercial supplements for you to down today. Firstly, one for Chocks Bugs Bunny vitamins that aired in February of 1974.
Second, a spot for Rexall drug store vitamins. This one aired in January of 1975. In Los Angeles, we had a large Rexall drug store across the street from Beverly Park (the local children’s amusement park) for a few decades there. I’d often visit the Rexall for candy to stuff my little face, or to spend some quality time ogling the toys on display.
Actor James Coburn donned Western finery for a series of Schlitz Light beer commercials in the late seventies. I’m pleased to present a pair of these spots for you today from October and November of 1977.
Three burgers for the gentle giant, Mr. Rosey Grier
“That’s MY way.”
Here’s a good find. A spot for Burger King starring Rosey Grier (NY Giants, LA Rams) and Maureen McCormick (The Brady Bunch). You’ll also find Chris Beaumont (who made a few Brady Bunch guest appearances) co-starring. The spot aired in January of 1976 and was produced in 1975.
Our second spot features White Lily Muffin Mix and also aired in Jan ’76 – produced in ’75.
