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.

Rick: I'm not able to update this post. Are you able to change my website link to the current address of www.waltdatedworld.com ? I am having trouble with traffic still showing in Google from my old site address (we are working on redirects but it's really a messed up, long story) and this was one thing that showed up. Thanks!
This happened exactly on my birthday, but since I lived in Florida I didn't hear much about it until some time later.
I really don't believe disco was all that bad. The real problem was that it became so ridiculously popular that it was everywhere, and pretty much everything was being done as disco. There was a lot of garbage with a dance beat that was put out back then, and people just got sick of it. But that's no excuse for violence. It would have just faded away quietly in a matter of time if this hadn't happened.
