The Dailey Series...Hunt's Barbecue Sauce!

Back in the days when thicker was better, everyone seem to explore the standing knife trick. So, this concept had more than just four frames to prove this point and get the actor the most exposure possible.

The reproduction of these frames is pretty poor only because the original art was color xeroxed from prints.  This board was approved and a series of commercials was shot with Dick Van Dyke as the spokes person. Notice that type on the product and in the last frame was, at this time, still done by hand.

  1. Ooo la la! Le sauce est toute! Oh, wait, that was some other ad. Funny how we remember stuff like that. My first French lesson, from Chef Boyardee. Something so attractive about a man in a kitchen.
