Vintage TV Commercials

Duke University has put their collection from the D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles Archives online through iTunes. You can access the animated commercials here. Lots of Post cereal and Beech-Nut gum and candy commercials.

iTunes is a clunky interface for quickly working through these TV spots, but if you have the patience, you can find some interesting work.

Great pick for a framegrab--I could not check it out fast enough. Curiously, thought I spent an enormous amount of time in front of the TV as a kid, I have no memory of these HOT SHOTS (or the product--maybe it never saw a wide release)--still, they are NIFTY!
