“Getting people together.”

We’ll finish off 1976 Week with two humorous spots from Boeing. In the first commercial, romantic hideaways are encouraged. In the second, flying to warm, blue waters is encouraged…on a Boeing Jetliner, of course.

Today, we have two Ford commercials in the retro showroom. First, a cool burner for the Mustang II Cobra. After that, a fun comparison featuring the Ford Maverick and the Plymouth Volaré. Both spots aired in December of 1976.

“Drunks need booze and I’m all out…”

A very wonderful Friday to you, Bionic Crew! Here’s a promo for ABC’s drama series, Family.

Somehow, throughout all of these years on the site, I’ve neglected to mention that I had a huge crush on Kristy McNichol when I was a kid. Yep, sure did.

The promo below aired in December of 1976. Unfortunately, dreamy Kristy doesn’t appear in the clip, but it’s a good one anyway. Enjoy!

“For too long now bowlers have been left out of Lite beer commercials.”

Happy lazy Sunday. Here are two commercials for Miller that ran in September of 1978.

First up, former pro, Don Carter represents for bowlers in a humorous one for Miller Lite. After that, a Miller High Life spot featuring workers raising a circus. This one has the same flavor as a Marlboro ad.
