I love the Pig and Oink. If only more tv commercials were like that one! It's hard to believe that pie face was a real product. Who the hell thought that was a good idea?? Thanks for posting this. These were a lot of fun to look at...

Ooh, yes, I fondly recall the Ritz Thrift Shop commercials. Somehow it melds in my mind with the mental images of hearing about the women duking it out over the stuff in Filene's Basement. The gal in the Ritz commercial could have had a mean upper cut.

I think that's the infamous Armand Schaubroeck in the House of Guitar ads. He owns the place, if memory serves

I would love to have seen Johnny Ramone play that Mosrite guitar that looks like the one on the cover of the Lyres' She Pays The Rent EP. Apparently those no-goodniks in Rochester didn't buy enough copies of Leave Home or Rocket to Russia so that he could buy the guitar.

Ahhhh, I love those House of Guitars commercials! Been waiting for some to pop up on YouTube.
I dimly recall the ones from the early 70's, Arnold was flying the flag of freakdom in Western New York.

God, I loved the Ritz Thrift Shop spot....the voice over guy sounds really familiar...but there's no information on this spot other than the agency. Shame.

I now have Moo & Oink stuck in my head forever, which is a little better than the one it replaced: a herpes sore cream song to a tune from Bye Bye Birdie: "Cold sores are gonna clear up, Put on a happy face." I hear this commercial every morning and immediately my brain cracks a little.
