Thank You for Your Support!

As Turkey Day approaches, Your Humble Scribe got to cogitating about the Mass Media, Commercialism, and, but of course, Frank Bartles & Ed James, of the much-cherished (in some circles, anywho) wine cooler ads.

These commercials, which ran on TV from 1984 to 1991, were born in the era of MTV (which is actually 3 years older), but are so not like that jaded, uber-sell-me-something-quick scene. The ads featured a couple of our faves: two folksy gentlemen, named Frank & Ed. Frank was the spokesman, Ed the comic relief.

Thought y'all might like this Breath of Fresh Air, when things weren't quite so commercial, or complicated...yet. And, Thank You for Your Support!

I always adored these commercials. Do they still sell B&J? I've never been much of a wine cooler fan, but these cute coots could sell me anything!

Gallo Winery, Modesto, California; just up the road apiece from me. These guys were typical to our neck of the woods. I believe both have passed on, just like the Gallo brothers.
