42 Years Ago Today

Here's an interesting Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial with an odd slogan - was this made for local Detroit only?

"It's not just the crispiness you put on your chicken, it's the taste you put in your crispiness..." Whaa? They should have had Orson Welles do this one.

This aired on June 19, 1977.

Having the dopey gork model doesn't help the taste either. Stick with original recipe!

I think he's kind of cute (though I am a sucker for geeks).

Because everything was still photos, makes me think it was something the Detroit area KFCs maybe put together for their market as cheaper than hiring a crew to do a video commercial, but, I might be wrong. Also many of the photos seem somewhat "Amateurish", even for 70s national TV campaigns.

"It's the taste you put in your crispiness!" Words to live by.

Hmmmmmm. "Have a Coke and a Smile", "Have it Your Way" "Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet" "Two All Beef Patties, Special Sauce, Lettuce, Cheese, Pickles, Onions on a Sesame Seed Bun" and then we have "It's not just the crispiness you put on your chicken, it's the taste you put in your crispiness" Wait.......WHAT???!?!?!

If the description didn't say it ran on TV, I'd say that it almost seems like a locally produced ad that would run in a movie theater or drive in.

Same lady that went on to play on the show Family Ties!

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5-x-9LciYA is basically the same ad about 13 years earlier sans the baby.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.

The reaction of how Moe and Curly turned around to look at the wall paper is still funny as heck to me!! LOL!!!!

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - G.I. Joe (Commercial Break #2, 1987) by VintageCanada on Monday, January 21st, 2019 at 6:24pm CT

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.

The Facts of Life information: Season 7 Episode 2: "Into the Frying Pan", originally aired on NBC on September 21, 1985, and the first to have George Clooney in the opening credits, and the second of only three episodes in this particular season to have Edna's Edibles as the opening backdrop. The next opening backdrop to be used (Over Our Heads) debuted two episodes later (S7E4) and would last right to the two-part series finale in 1988.

I see Emmanuel Lewis (Webster) in the last take.

That video was from yesterday. They got the title and video mixed up. In 1959 Ron was a child then, probably not an actor yet.
