La Preferida Foods With Harry Caray (Commercial, 1980)

What comes to mind when you think of Harry Caray? If you said Mexican Food products, you'd be correct! Here's a commercial for La Preferida Foods featuring the late, great Sox and Cubs broadcaster.

(Remember, "La Preferida" backwards is "Adireferp Al")

Question for everyone: "If you were a taco, and you were starving, would you eat yourself?" I know I would!

This aired on local Chicago TV early Saturday, September 20th 1980.

Who would agree with me in saying that Chicago had the two greatest pitchmen in the history of sports; Michael Jordan of course and Harry Caray.

Spr463: I would agree that Michael Jordan is an incredibly affective figurehead for product advertisement, but he doesn't say a lot during his commercials.

In the case of Harry, by the time he was making his "Cub Fan, Bud Man" commercials he came across as quite distant and slow (and was rarely pressured to speak in taped-for-broadcast commercials). I am quite pleasantly surprised by how well Harry performs in this commercial. He seems quite together.

May not be Falstaff Beer,but it's still classic Harry!

As you can tell from some of the old play-by-play clips on this site, Harry was among the best broadcasters in sports before his stroke. It's sad that some people remember him only as the slow, colorful old man he was in his later years.

That's awesome that Harry says "Holy Cow! What a meal" with a mouthful of tostadas.

In terms of baseball announcers famous for commercials, there was the case of 1957-98 WPIX Channel 11 (New York) Yankees announcer Phil Rizzuto, who for many years was the ad spokesman for The Money Store. YouTube has many examples of such ads from the 1970's into the '80's.

Aw man, Harry Caray shouldn't have been talking with his mouth full.

I'm WAY too young to remember Old Chicago, but from looking at these old commercials, it looks like it was an indoor type of amusement park, kind of like what Camp Snoopy or I think it's Nickelodeon Land at Mall of America. Am I right?

@Brian1978 - Well, they did air the same commercial that day (almost - see below) but the one posted here did come from an entirely new and undiscovered Bozo's Circus episode that I found, which aired on Wednesday, July 11th 1979.

By the way, the version of this ad that did air during Chicagofest interestingly has a slightly different opening title card - all in white versus the oscillating multi-color seen here. Take a look.


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Monsters of the Midway" (Commercial, 1979) by Brian1978 on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:09am CT

This was the second commercial during the first break of the special, "Bozo at Chicagofest" taking place on August 3rd, 1979. I will always think of it being after the commercial for Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom.

Wow, old post! Anyway, that's Steve Vinovich ("Mannequin") as the hapless father in the Aunt Jemima ad.

I like that several minutes of the film was shown, even if it was just for the onscreen ID. After watching, I felt as if I actually earned that commercial break. :')

"So whaddya got Johnson?"

"A brand new gum named for something your bathwater comes out of!...and wait until you see the commercial I came up with!"

Felipe Rose (the Indian) scarily resembles the Twi'lek dancer from Return of the Jedi who's dumped into the Rancor pit by Jabba, the way he's moving around on stage with the headdress swinging behind him.

Matt Snell is famous for having scored the only Super Bowl touchdown in NY Jets history, in their 16-7 win over the Colts in 1968.

Wow, that looks...gross. No wonder it didn't stay on the market for very long.

I'm almost positive that's Eddie Deezen as the groom; his face is a giveaway but I couldn't find any pictures of him with that hair. This would've been a year after he appeared in Grease.
