Commercial of the Week — Groovy Animated Edition

I can imagine what the pitch session for this commercial was like.

“We need animation. Yeah, animation. And groovy surf music. And blondes! Everyone has perfect blonde hair with perfect blonde skin. Oh, and one more idea — Karloff. We’ll get Boris Karloff for the voiceover. It’ll be brilliant.”

    Is that Jay Ward animation? Groovy! And Boris Karloff isn’t such an odd choice, really. He was the voice of the Grinch (and, I think, the narrator) in the Dr. Seuss animation.

    A foodie related Boris Karloff story – My father and late mother were dining at the Old Homestead in NY, way back in the day. My mother, an attractive blonde, noticed Karloff dining with friends at a nearby table. Over my father’s objections, she insisted on going to his table and speaking with him. By all accounts he was most kind and gracious, not at all like his scary screen persona. A true English gentleman and a great memory for my parents.
