Former New York Yankees manager Billy Martin is the one in the yellow floppy hat. He died three years later in a car accident. Comment posted by MST3K1993 on Saturday, February 23rd 2008 at 12:17am.
Greatest ad campaign of all time. Don't know what Miller Lite was thinking when they abandoned it for all of the lame ad campaigns that followed! Comment posted by Ray on Saturday, February 23rd 2008 at 2:25am.
Mickey Spillane and Bubba Smith are two of the other celebrities in the ad.
And I kinda like the "Man Laws" ad campaign for Miller Lite, but yes, this is better. Comment posted by daniel75 on Saturday, February 23rd 2008 at 2:46am.
Let's not forget ex-NFL players L.C. Greenwood (The can crusher in one Miller Lite commerical),and Bert Jones (who tried to do what L.C. did in another commerical).And ex-New York Met "Marvelious" Marv Throneberry (who said,"This 'Open' otta be closed!).
Do you all remember Billy Martin's commercial with Yankees owner George Stienbrenner?That too was a classic. Comment posted by SoxOnTV44 on Saturday, February 23rd 2008 at 10:22am.
Ben Davidson was the big burly bearded guy saying "This calls for another Lite Beer from Miller".
Steve Mizerak was the guy hitting the golf ball like he was shooting pool (he did the "you can work up a thirst even when you're just showing off" commercial where he sank a really tricky pool shot).
And who could forget "the Doll", Lee Meredith?
Billy Martin had two other memorable Miller Lite commercial moments: one in the "Group Photo" ad where he was giving someone bunny ears ("knock it off Billy, you NEED this job!") and the one with rodeo cowboy Jim Shoulders where he talks about how Lite quenches his thirst after a day of rounding up dogies and Billy responds "I didn't punch that doggie!"

I think that was Bob Uecker trying to hit the ball out from UNDER the water hazard. Comment posted by armitagenlowell on Sunday, February 24th 2008 at 3:03pm.

I found this on YouTube as a Sesame Street clip. Check out the comments though because someone named Paul Kyriazi claims to have directed it for Sesame Street and said that Mark Krigbaum produced and edited it and Roy Cox photographed it on 16mm film. The link is:
OK - now having actually watched the clip again, I know what's going on here. I forgot where this clip originated but it wasn't with me. It is a clip from the 1982 Emmys, but it was shown during a segment of Steve Dahl's It's Too Early show. (the slide at the end is going back into the show (or perhaps to a commercial break), where you can hear the in-studio band noodling) Perhaps he showed this clip in anticipation of the 1983 Emmy Awards - not sure.
