Empire Carpets - "Kiddie Look-Alike" (Commercial, 1983)

Here's another Empire Carpets commercial - featuring a pint-sized version of Lynn Hauldren (Empire Carpet Man). The child in this commercial was Jason Kane, who grew up to be a Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Physician at Children's Memorial Hospital. (Just goes to show you where doing an Empire commercial can take you.)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, March 13th 1983.

Anyone else notice that the kid's hair gets noticably shorter at the 22 second mark??

Somebody roll this kid up in some of that carpet he's hawking and put him out on the street for the garbage man. I hated this kid/commercial...I also think that kid is wearing my glasses from back then. Maybe I shouldn't hate him so much...after all, we were stylin'!

The free T-shirt must have been added after the kid initially did the commercial and he was brought back, sans the bowl haircut.

They were really going for the cuteness factor, weren't they?

I miss Bob. He was the first person (or character to be more accurate) of some notability I ever sent an e-mail to. I did get a very nice letter back from Jay Shefsky saying Bob was on vacation. I suppose it was the same place Forrest Gump's father ran off to because we never saw him again after that.
