Andre Champagne & Cold Duck - "Greet The Season" (Commercial, 1976)

Here's an even earlier variation of the Christmas Andre Champagne commercial - this one also including Cold Duck for your sparkling holiday drinking. Differs a bit from the 1979 and 1983 commercials.

This aired on local Rockford, IL TV on Monday, December 6th 1976! (not Chicago, but close enough)

Cold duck? Wish it was Daffy Duck they're trying to serve on a silver platter, because they tried to hunt him down for years.

I always think of Andre's during this season. I haven't seen these commercials for many years.

Yep! Nothing says class like cold duck...or even ripple...heck, even MD 20/20!
Now THAT is class!

LOL! I sent a friend to get champagne last NYE and he came back with grape Cold Duck. I was PI**ED!

Is it my imagination, or does the girl at :24-:25 look a bit like Genie Francis? (Who, I know, wouldn't have actually been in this ad, given when this aired.)

What is "Cold Duck"?? I'm curious!!!
Comment posted by michiganfan on Monday, December 21st 2009 at 7:17pm.

It's a combination of wine and champagne.

As with most things, Wikipedia has the full story. :-)

In short; the crap that is left over.

In Canada, it would have been Baby Duck and Kraft Dinner!

The details have been duly filled in by the pertinent elves in charge of fleshing out same.

Wonder what cameras were used by 'FLD then - Ikegamis? Philips'?

The one that was on Kingery Road/IL Route 83 is now Binney's and is quite a place

This has been credited as one of the longest running ads ever in American Television History. I remember seeing it so many times that the orchestral harp and bust [whom I believe is Beethoven] became well-remembered images. It also was where I first heard of Tchaikovsky's and Grieg's names [and I confess that I mis-remembered the 2nd featured work as 'Full Moon & Eight Empty Arms', that's a love song for a octopus ;) ]

I thought there was another Chicago TV late movie show that also used "Take Five" as well. Often I think of the Late Movie and Chicago jazz clubs when I here "Take Five" [although it was recorded in NYC]

What ever happened to the fuzzy-memories version of this ad with the gunfire at the end?

I had wanted one of these computers since I had the Colecovision. After all the huge problems the ADAM had, I am glad I never did.

I remember seeing this ad several times just before I turned 5 [I was in Homewood IL at the time]. This was a surprise seeing this ad again!

David H: If you look at an ad from the same campaign a year earlier http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=1467 , the numbers do NOT start with 555, but 888, 8 and 7.

Interesting that when you see the closeups of the phone and the hands pressing the buttons, they always start with 555- , the default phone number choice used for all phone numbers on TV shows from this era.
