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.

On top of Just Men! hosted by Betty White where she won a daytime emmy for her hosting gig, but the updated version of $ale of the Century & Hit Man debuted the same day. Both Just Men! & Hit Man ended after 3 months, but $ale stayed on until Friday, March 24, 1989. That's 6 years and 2 months & 1,578 shows in all.
Just watched this commercial here for the first time, and remembered it instantly from when it originally aired. A pleasant, simple, straightforward and effective message expressed without yelling, bombast or any people acting like idiots. Those were the days.
A portion of this clip was featured in a recent episode of AMC's The Making of the Mob: Chicago.
