British Sterling (Commercial, 1977)

Here's a commercial for British Sterling cologne for men. Seems similar to Velamints commercials of the same era.

It's hard to see but I think it says Spiegel at the bottom - the place you could get this at.

This aired on local Chicago TV a few days before 11-21-77.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Yes, indeed - it's from a Umatic. :-)

I'm not sure if it's been said before, this must've come from a U-Matic tape.

In another sense, a belated recognition of Mr. Lewis' recent death.
