Stan Freberg, Ray Bradbury and Prunes

Phirm showed me this. It’s a Sunsweet Prunes commercial from the 60s. This is exactly the way I remember 2001, minus all the prune-gobbling.

    What a blast from the past! Freberg’s voice is just something everyone instantly recognizes. Now if anyone can locate his Corn Chex commercial which was titled The HIstory of Corn and is probably totally politically incorrect I would love to reconnect with that memory as it was hilarious for its understatement.

    genius commercial! i say it was ahead of it’s time bc the humor is similar to that of today’s commercials. we think we are being hip, but sadly it’s all been done before

    Pneumatic tubes would suck.

    Awesome. Just awesome.

    So wait, your 2001 wasn’t spent prune-gobbling? Where were you, man?
