R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - "The Deal Maker" (Commercial, 1982)

Here's an extended R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile commercial - these were some pretty catchy and entertaining commercials that never really got their full due.

R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - The Deal Maker - at 78th Street and the Dan Ryan in Chicago.

Directed by Howie Samuelsohn. I wonder who the voiceover guy is - he's pretty cool. :-)

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1982.

Funky old school R&B theme in the 1980's!

This place was about 4 blocks east from where my aunt lived. I lived farther south in Roseland, but we used to go pass here to my aunts for BBQing. It's loooong gone now.

That voice over dude is really jammin! I'd love to know if he's still working.

Is Howie Samuelsohn the former hippie with the missing eye that used to be on WSNS-TV?

Was the R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile car dealer a former Kohl's grocery store since it's the same shape as one of those Kohl's grocery stores?

The lady in the commercial has a nice chasis ; ). My dad had a '79 Cutlass Supreme Broham, that car rocked!

You could be right that it was an old Kohl's store. Check out this link of one of the old stores.

My father bought from Marquart(sp?) Olds on Skokie Hwy over by Lakehurst mall. From a quick Google search,it appears to be gone.

Weren't most of these filmed in San Francisco? The firefighter one was for sure.

For some reason, this patrolman's voice reminds me of that of a mail person who once delivered mail to my house for many years, before being assigned to another route elsewhere in Manhattan. Can anyone say for sure, based on some of the buildings, where this cop was based?

Did anyone ever try to make a "Come Back Here" can?


Comment posted in Snipets - "Body Pride" (1976?) by FuzzyMemories on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at 9:02pm CT

Oh, right - Berwyn. Can't find anything good in Berwyn any more. :-)


Comment posted in Snipets - "Body Pride" (1976?) by GDambek on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at 8:07pm CT

"Come back here" will turn up sooner or later, probably unexpectedly. I'll bet it's sitting on a long forgotten tape, in a dark basement corner in Berwyn. ;)

We have 6 days to use the Colonel's 9 Piece deal...just says offer good through Feb. 20th.

9 pieces of chicken for $3.50...How much are 9 pieces today? And is it even real chicken?

This is the equivalent of patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.

Haven't seen this since it was first broadcast, yet remembered it instantly as soon as it started. I wish I knew why part of my brain that could be storing Tennyson poetry or the birthdays and anniversaries of close friends has decided, "No, we're going to hold onto this Digger the Dog commercial instead."

That building in the shot looks very familiar.


Comment posted in Kentucky Fried Chicken - "The Colonel in Chicago" (Commercial, 1977) by Smctopia on Sunday, February 12th, 2017 at 4:09pm CT

What building exactly are they in? Is that where the Potbelly is now?
