More About the 1970 Kellogg's Commercial
Does anyone recognize the voice on the commercial? More about that in the future. I'm not working on making the video quality better now. I've decided to take a different direction on this after watching the video in slow-motion.
I noticed that only 45 of the players are shown in the entire commercial. The clip added yesterday shows 36 cards from the set. I noticed this because two of my favorite cards from that set, Bob Hayes and Daryle Lamonica, were not in the commercial. It got me wondering who else wasn't included and why.
They didn't display the cards in numerical order so it wasn't as simple as running out of time. It is noticeable that the clip switches from the cards when there are still cards in the stack. The second clip does the same thing.
Does anyone have an idea why they wouldn't include Nelson, Stenerud, Garrett and Garrett, Olsen, Grayson, Alworth, Simpson, Hill, Sayers, Jurgensen, Unitas and Nobis? Some of these guys were bigger names in 1970 than many of the players shown in the commercial.
