Great Shakes and such

As a graphic designer, I enjoy looking at vintage commercials for their graphics, logos, typography treatments and jingles. Some are so bad they're AWESOME! I also love when a commercial is infused with the popular culture of the day. Shake it with Great Shakes! Someone commented on YouTube how his mother still has the cup and lid and uses it to make gravy. Someone else said the commercial was shot in the living/dining room on the Bewitched set. The Yardbirds, The Who and a slew of others recorded radio jingles for this junk. It's smooooooth and dreamy. Huh? Check out this cool thing. A lot better than cards against your bike spokes. Vrooooooooooooom! Pop a wheelie.
