Great Moments In Commercial History: Mr. Appliance

UPDATE: The original Mr. Appliance ad we wrote about seems to have vanished from YouTube, so the sequel, “Mission Appliance II” is now posted above. Also, there is a whole collection of Mr. Appliance ads here.

Reader Tyler says, ” Mr. Appliance in Eugene, Oregon is just plain sad.” We don’t know about that Tyler. He looks happy to us. We are concerned about his technique of banging on the tops of refrigerators, though.

The most important lesson to learn from Mr. Appliance is that putting on and taking off sunglasses is an effective way to punctuate a sentence. Wahh!
