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.

Round of golf in Buffalo Grove in Chicago? Do you mean the Buffalo Grove Golf course in Buffalo Grove? That's pretty cool because I live right on the border of the course. It's in danger of being reduced from 18 holes to 9 because they want to create a "downtown" there.
Another of the voices was Corinne Orr, aka Trixie, Spritle, and all the female voices from Speed Racer. IMDB lists the original Japanese title as Andersen Monogatari with an 80-minute running time, or ten minutes longer than this one.
I got one of these cameras in '82 and still have several of the negatives; they have a central plastic hub with little negatives around it. I rigged my film scanner's 2x2 negative tray with a mask that would let me rotate the hub and scan the images one at a time with pretty good results (but not like the "simulations" in the commercial!).
The World of Hans Christian Andersen, also known as "Hansu Kurushitan Anderusan no sekai" has an aspect ratio of 2.35 : 1 for theatre distribution, and it looks like rather than crop the image, WGN ran it without an anamorphic lens.
