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.

Rick: I'm not able to update this post. Are you able to change my website link to the current address of www.waltdatedworld.com ? I am having trouble with traffic still showing in Google from my old site address (we are working on redirects but it's really a messed up, long story) and this was one thing that showed up. Thanks!

Voiceover by Dave Martin, who was WCFL's program director at the time. He later held the same job at WCLR, and voiced this commercial, too.

After his near fatal car accident in 1954 that left him blind in one eye, was it really the best idea to have Sammy Davis Junior getting in a car ready to drive off after mailing a letter?

At the start of this ad, there is a 0 in the upper left hand corner, a 1 in the upper right hand corner, a 4 in the lower left hand corner and a 3 in the lower right hand corner.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 - "Disco Demolition Already In Progress" (1979) by Gator Girl on Sunday, July 10th, 2016 at 3:10pm CT

This happened exactly on my birthday, but since I lived in Florida I didn't hear much about it until some time later.

I really don't believe disco was all that bad. The real problem was that it became so ridiculously popular that it was everywhere, and pretty much everything was being done as disco. There was a lot of garbage with a dance beat that was put out back then, and people just got sick of it. But that's no excuse for violence. It would have just faded away quietly in a matter of time if this hadn't happened.
