Lois Griffin voiceover?

Piggy-backing off of MST's statement:

Now we know where Alex Borstein got the voice for Trisha Takanawa, Asian reporter.

No, the voiceover in the commercial might be Eartha Kitt.

Funny, I thought it would've been Tammy Grimes.

The voiceover IS Eartha Kitt. Close your eyes and think of the black Catwoman in the Batman TV show.

That would be pretty amazing if it really was her. I have no other guesses. So, I suppose we'll never know for sure... (crosses arms, waits for answer to magically appear)

This was a great album, but I forgot they did a commercial for it. Now that I think of it, commercials promoting albums, like this one, were big at one time. Got any more?

The album was released in September 1977. My 13th birthday, the month we moved into the house I am still living at, and they month I started Grade 8, and then this album! Peg was one of my favorite songs!

Today, she does the voice of Yzma/Amzy on Disney's Emperor's New School.

I believe this album had one of my favorite songs: Black Cow.

ABC Records was taken over by MCA Records in 1979. In 2003, MCA Records was absorbed in to Geffen Records. Geffen now has the entire ABC and MCA Records catalog. One of the best LP's by Steely Dan. You might find a lot of these in thrift stores.

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!


Comment posted in Arby's - "America's Roast Beef Yes Sir!" (Commercial, 1981) by OldTime on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 at 5:33am CT

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!


Comment posted in WLUP - 'The Loop' FM 98 - "Do You Like Music?" (Commercial, 1978) by David H on Sunday, May 13th, 2018 at 10:57pm CT

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
