1960's Car Salesman

This is a classic.

Ralph Williams was a Big time car salesman in San Francisco area who took his job seriously and didn't care who knew it.

This is one of the greatest commercials ever seen and it only aired once. When you see it, you'll know why.

During the late 60's, 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. He quit right after this commercial. This is no blooper. This guy was just upset with his boss and told it like he thought it was.

What a great job of ad-libbing. He never misses a beat, if you listen carefully, you'll hear the cameraman and sound man lose it. The commercial got on air, but only once.
