      1960s Car Salesman....READ BEFORE WATCHING!!!

      Who remembers Ralph Williams in SF area? Big time car dealer!
      This is one of the greatest commercials ever seen and it only aired once.
      During the late 60s, most television programs and commercials
      were live. There were no "pre-recorded" programs. There were some
      obvious problems with this method. No "retakes" and "bloopers" were a
      regular occurrence. The salesman quit right after this commercial.
      This is no blooper! This guy was just very upset with his boss
      and told it like he thought it was. What a great job of ad-libbing. He
      never misses a beat while, if you listen carefully, you'll hear the cameraman
      and sound man lose it.

      The commercial got on the air, but only once!

    I remember those ads too. And the many different animals that played the role of Spot. They lent themselves a certain type of humor :D

    "Hi, I'm Cal Worthington and this is my dog Spot! We have great deals on Jeep Wranglers! So come on down..."

    That was a good one. I really liked the old G/S footage starting at about 10 seconds in.
