André 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.

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!

I agree, great find. Loved the music at the beginning.

The song playing at the end of "We've Got the Hits" is "Whenever I Call You 'Friend'" by Kenny Loggins, which was his first hit as a solo artist.

This video should definitely be recaptured, it's much lower quality than later videos on here.

Seeing the van in the high weeds with its door open makes me think that the driver is off burying someone...

I'm WAY too young to remember Old Chicago, but from looking at these old commercials, it looks like it was an indoor type of amusement park, kind of like what Camp Snoopy or I think it's Nickelodeon Land at Mall of America. Am I right?


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Monsters of the Midway" (Commercial, 1979) by FuzzyMemories on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:43am CT

@Brian1978 - Well, they did air the same commercial that day (almost - see below) but the one posted here did come from an entirely new and undiscovered Bozo's Circus episode that I found, which aired on Wednesday, July 11th 1979.

By the way, the version of this ad that did air during Chicagofest interestingly has a slightly different opening title card - all in white versus the oscillating multi-color seen here. Take a look.


Comment posted in Old Chicago - "Monsters of the Midway" (Commercial, 1979) by Brian1978 on Monday, July 28th, 2014 at 9:09am CT

This was the second commercial during the first break of the special, "Bozo at Chicagofest" taking place on August 3rd, 1979. I will always think of it being after the commercial for Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom.
