That is GREAT. I remember the series of Ranier ads featuring the "R-heads" (a takeoff on the Coneheads, naturally), but I don't think I ever saw this one...
I think I saw this on one of those blooper/variety shows that were popular back in the '80s. Wasn't there another commercial featuring a Star Wars-type bar with Caroline Munro as the bartender?
"Wasn't there another commercial featuring a Star Wars-type bar with Caroline Munro as the bartender?"Yep. Right here.
Thanks for that! I probably remembered it from this fine blog.
I grew up in the Seattle area and always remember these commercials being the talk of the school yard. We even got to take a grade school trip to the brewery, something that would never fly these days.
They also reference Close Encounters at the end - that's what that little tune they hum is supposed to be!
Very nice find
