34 Years Ago Today

Here's another transition from regular ON TV Subscription Television programming to the "Optional Service" of Adults Only mode, which was presenting the movie "Russ Meyer's SuperVixens" which immediately followed the presentation of "Alien".

There is a bit of a technical difficulties moment however, when the Adults Only opening animation tape gets screwed up and we see black for a bit. Notice, the CG font is different in this one too.

This aired on Sunday, May 3, 1981.

ON TV - Adults Only - "Russ Meyer's SuperVixens" (Opening, 1981)

Here's another transition from regular ON TV Subscription Television programming to the "Optional Service" of Adults Only mode, which was presenting the movie "Russ Meyer's SuperVixens". (this immediately followed the presentation of "Alien".

Quality on this one is better than "The World of Henry Paris" intro from before. There is a bit of a technical difficulties moment however, when the Adults Only opening animation tape gets screwed up and we see black for a bit. Notice, the CG font is different in this one too.

Voiceover for ON TV ID at the very beginning is WSNS' former General Manager/Announcer Mal Wyman.

Voiceover for the introduction/transition to Adults Only by Lloyd Hanson.

We then hear another voiceover by Mal Wyman while we're waiting for the movie to start.

Geez....by the time any real action happened, I'd have been smoking a cigarette by then. *Some of you will get that joke and some will not*

Nice of them to run this film print thru the sander before it aired.

The original airdate is May 3, my father's birthday. Then the first credit is "A September 19 Production." That's my birthday!

Comment posted in Pampers - "Twice As Dry" (Commercial, 1979) by FuzzyMemories on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 at 12:27pm CT

This one features Sara Jane Whitman (Sara Ramos) as the baby. As she wrote to us in May of 2009:

"Here's my story: I have two older brothers, identical twins, and my mom had an agent trying to help get them into commercials. For whatever reason they weren't selected for any commercials (though I think one was in a TIDE commercial that never aired). When I was about 18 months old, my mom was talking to the agent and mentioned that she had a blonde hair/blue-eyed baby girl and the agent sent us on an audition for Pampers. I'm not sure this part is right, but as I think it goes, they didn't pick me. Later, the agent called my mom to say they wanted me to come back because I was so well behaved while waiting for the audition. Maybe the original baby was better looking, but not so well behaved? So, my mom brought me. She said I drank Evian water all day - and the crew sent her home with a case of it after the shoot since I liked it so much.

Here we are, 31 years later, and I had never seen the commercial until a work colleague found it on YouTube. I tried about 10 years ago to get it from Pampers. They sent me a few commercials, but none were me. I tried the ad agency and then the university housing the ad agency's old film reels. Nothing came through. I stopped trying and a month or so ago received an email from a colleague asking if the baby in the commercial on YouTube was me. And, yes it is! I really can't thank you enough. It was so very fulfilling to finally watch something that has been so much a part of my life story. You can't imagine what this means to me. To ultimately see this for the first time on YouTube was surreal and enjoyed by my entire family. So thank you, thank you."

Comment posted in McDonald's - "We Do It All For You" (Commercial, 197?) by Brian1978 on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 at 1:19pm CT

It seems the marketing was also way better back in the '70s then it is today. Do you think they would be able to get away with a commercial that just has ordinary people working and smiling while a nonsense jingle is playing for a WHOLE MINUTE???? When this aired on TV, this would have been a whole commercial break during Bozo's Circus or Ray Rayner. Also, I love the fact that they used ordinary people to sell their products and not some creepy clown and his high on LSD make up friends (even though Ronald was around during this time as well as Grimace).


Comment posted in Burger King - "The Return of the Whaler" (Commercial, 1983) by Detroit4Chicago on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at 10:08pm CT

BK's Whaler Fish Sandwich; on today's BK menu, it's called The Big Fish.

Reason? Changed in the late 1990's to keep the "Save The Whales" crowd, the environmental crowd and to some extent, the PETA crowd at bay, so to speak.

Name sounded if the product came from whale blubber. Sort of like "buffalo wings;" some folks won't eat 'em. Why? Because they sound like they came from buffalo, not chicken! :?

I think in between, the sandwich was later called the Ocean Catch by BK, but idk.
