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.

Thanks for the info once again, Nancy. :-) Keep looking; I hope you can ID the Mandy version some day.

Wow, it's been a while.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.

However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.
