Quote from: PammySpacek on November 15, 2021, 03:04:34 PMThat was from a "Day At McDonald's" advert from around the same time, wasn't it? Started with a branch opening up at 6am or something, shots of muffins rising in an oven (as if they actually baked them themselves), and then onto a cast of slightly zany everyman characters up to "until late". The only other thing I remember from it is a bit where an elderly actress who's supposed to be a grandma to a baby holds up a wrapped hamburger to it and goes "What's this?". Baby looks at it appalled for a moment, and starts bawling. "Ooh no, no," says the actress, putting the burger down.

Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on November 16, 2021, 12:20:57 PMI remember the french polishers ad, I also remember a comedy show (maybe Mary Whitehouse Exoerience?) doing a spoof of it with the final line changed to "Hello, clinic for physical deformities? It's just possible you could save my life."

Quote from: Replies From View on November 18, 2021, 02:25:09 PMFor how long was Philip Schofield absolutely obsessed with the song Down Town? It felt like the majority of my childhood summers. Can anyone else remember this?
QuoteThe film portrays the somewhat fictional Grizzly Adams as a frontier woodsman who fled into the mountains after he was accused of a murder he didn't commit. While struggling to survive, Adams saves an orphaned grizzly bear cub he adopts and names Ben. The bear, while growing to its huge adult size, becomes Adams' closest companion. Consistently kind and gentle, Adams discovers and demonstrates an uncanny ability to gain the trust of most of the indigenous wildlife of the region, and he helps, sometimes rescues, takes in and tames many species. Originally a hunter, with his learned affection for wildlife Adams resolves never to harm another animal whenever possible.
