Hmm...They needed to put more umph into it and have her dance around and scream "YIPPIEEEEEE! WE GOT OUR LICENSE! WE GOT OUR LICENSE! WOO HOO! HAHAHAH! WE'RE NUMBER ONE! WE'RE NUMBER ONE! WE DIDN'T SCREW UP OR SAY THE F WORD ON THE AIR!" as she waves the license like a flag!

I think her hairdresser happened to have an audio supply catalog in the waiting area. Her Afro was clearly inspired by a microphone windscreen!

The "problems and needs" phrase stood out to me... it was also used in the WSNS license renewal script read by Linda Frost. That makes me wonder if this wording was taken straight out of the Federal Register, like the Emergency Broadcast System script, which we know was not "in voluntary cooperation" at all!

The language is not from the Federal Register, but from the FCC "Primer on Ascertainment of Community Problems by Broadcast Applicants."

Wow... that was actually the title of an FCC publication. I thought you were pulling my leg at first!

I love how that Jim Sutera guy has to loudly crinkle his bag of peanuts (or potato chips or whatever it is) and then stuff one in his mouth while he's talking. That's real class!

On July 12, 2014, it will mark the 35th anniversary of Disco Demolition event. Even though the second game was a forfeit, luckily nobody got hurt or died as a result of the melee.

And unfortunately the ChiSox lost the 2nd game to the Tigers 9-0 via forfeit.

Wait really?

This is the greatest comercial ever made....period!

I'm calling on BS on this commercial. I gave Dustin Hoffman a Tootsie (Roll) once, he punched me in the nose and filed a restraining order.

That toll collector looks a little like Dennis Franz...

omg I still love Juicy Juice <3


Comment posted in National Pork Producers Council - "Pork: The Other Meat Slogan" (Commercial, 1983) by Dth1971 on Sunday, April 13th, 2014 at 8:55pm CT

I know some other pork slogans:
"Tender Lovin' Fare" (late 1970's)
"It's Pork Cookout Time" (circa 1980)
And for the Canadian market: "Put Pork on Your Fork" (circa 1980)

Of course I remember the "America, you're leaning on pork" jingle in 1983.

A year later in 1984 Juicy Juice was acquired by Libby's.
