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?

It did sort of look like Jesse Jackson was mad at Mike Douglas right? LOL!

Interesting, the man who helped lead the Cubs to their closest shot at the World Series played there 24 years prior having no clue just how close he got.

By the by, for those who are wondering what Orion Samuelson's up to now, he appeared on RFD TV recently at a televised parade or something.

Between WMET and WNUA they were WRXR. Loved that station and listened until they flipped the summer of 1987. They were like WCKG with more variety.

Wait a sec - that's Orion Samuelson, right?

Until 2002 lol. I was 5 when they stopped giving $50K every day on the "Lucky Numbers II" game.
