WLS Channel 7 - The Day After (Commercial Break #4, 1983)
Here is Commercial Break #4 during The Day After on WLS Channel 7 - an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States. No sponsor wanted to buy ad time after the bombs were dropped, so this was the last break until the end of the movie. A full hour and 19 minutes with no commercial breaks or interruptions of any kind! Includes:
Commodore Computers - Zortek
Extra Strength Dexatrim
Dollar Rent-a-Car (again)
Hot Tracks - from K-Tel records
