My memory of British Sterling ads, is that I didn't recognize that the top half of the bottle was metal. I always thought it was a ripoff that they were only selling a half-full bottle! Comment posted by SuperCFL on Monday, December 31st 2007 at 1:40am.

One of our commercials was featured on the ABC show "NY Med" last night! (Episode 5)! It was a commercial from 1977 for British Sterling - the woman who was in the ER apparently did the voiceovers back then. I wish I knew her name - I would credit her! Check out the episode segment - skip to about 35:20 into the show - you have to watch a few commercials but then it will come up. Thanks to YouTuber "ClassicCommercial" (Jonathan) for the heads up!

At the bottom, the name is not Spiegel, it is Speidel, the makers of watchbands like Twist-O-Flex and Romunda. Comment posted by Dth1971 on Thursday, August 8th 2013 at 8:20pm.
A bright white lower third on a white snow background with no outline or shadow in a contrasting color. What were they thinking? It kind of reminds me of those subtitles in one of the Austin Powers movies. Comment posted by Szake on Thursday, August 8th 2013 at 9:09pm.

Smctopia - Half of the cards were from a normal deck. The other half were all the same (in this case, the ace of spades), cut slightly shorter than the others. They were then arranged short card-regular card. It's a little hard to explain from there.
Armitage - I had one of those stripper decks, too. And a marked deck with which I would play poker with my brothers...
I had what was known as a stripper deck (no, it didn't have naked lady suits on the cards...I had a deck of those too, though). The deck was factory cut a certain way as not to notice at first glance that the cards narrow from top to bottom. I would have to physically show you how it works. It is so simple. Never could get the hang of marked cards though.
