Classic 1950s Television Commercial for Buick (Aired 8 December 1953)



"will you repeat that for the west coast please?" A classic, fun, live television commercial for the 1950s for Buick's range of budget cars. Yes, there really were more than 12 different brands of cars to choose from in the USA in 1953. The commercial is somewhat forced, but not too bad. The commercial shows the preferred idea of 1950s TV in having a small number of long commercials instead of many short runs. The actual amount of advertising per an episode in the show this commercial comes from compares well to Network TV in the USA these days.
