I was watching a bit of TV this morning and saw a particularly memorable car commercial, complete with a heavily shadowed-green screened-costumed host. It made me somewhat sad, however, to think back to the wonderful and surprisingly bizarre local TV spots that Eugene, OR had to offer. To my delight, several of my favorites are available on youtube (above and below) so I can still get my Eugene local TV commercial fix.
If you have a similar fascination with local TV, I highly suggest you take a look at the 50 Greatest Local TV Commercials. I’ve watched every one… there’s just something special about local TV. And remembe: There’s no appliance like Mr. Appliance, and if you don’t go see Robert Saks, his hair can’t save you any money.
