Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds? Oh, yeah. We got the doit on dem.
Later they made the ads less salacious and tried to class up the feel of the trash a touch. They lost me at the smooth jingle. They've removed all the snappy bits and couched a few stories in a bunch of well-photographed footage. This ain't the New York friggin' Times, guys! Gimme some dirt!
My favorite remains elusive. I search for it periodically. It involves the ghost of Marilyn Monroe crying out from beyond the grave "It was murder!" They had a paper cutout of Marilyn and the breathy voice of a Marilyn impersonator doing the crying out. Someday I'll see it again.
These commercials were all about crap, but the technical prowess was amazing. They must have taken a long time to make for a weekly rag, but the editing was snappy and the schlocky animation, and early use of blue (or green) screen made the ads enjoyable.
