old age ain't no place for sissies

Surely the best spot ever made to promote eye exams. No idea who made it, or where. Only sure it wasn't done within view of US Standards and Practices.


Another great sighting by GardenBroad

That's a great spot. Wouldn't even leave the building at most agencies in the U.S.

Actually, I wonder if it ran intact anywhere, hmargulies. Haven't been able to find any credits in searches, which makes me suspect that maybe it didn't. Perhaps on some local station in Tanzania to qualify for award? Still. Funny as hell. Now where the heck are my glasses.

How reliant upon the black men as thieves stereotype. I thought it was horrible.

Hadn't thought of that, KMBA, but of course you are right. It also relies on stereotype of old people as dodderers. Sorry.
