So Newscoma posted a video on her blog of an entrepreneurial couple (Sharon and Fred) wooing customers to their video business with an online commercial that reminded me of one thing – Tex and Edna Boil’s Organ Emporium.
Yes, Andrea Martin and Dave Thomas nailed local television commercials in the 1970s with their performances as the Boils on SCTV. Brilliant stuff as was the entire show.
Sharon and Fred make their online pitch just a bit brighter by including animation for a song about Ogopogo – a Loch Ness Monster sort of creature. Who needs a movie, indeed!
Here’s a link to another magical Boil moment on SCTV. Makes me want to tickle the ivories on a Rhythm Ace.
