TV Ads – 1980 – Schlitz Beer + Clarion Auto Music + Crisco Shortening + Waverest Waterbeds

The Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company was an American brewery based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin….which once was the largest producer of beer in the United States….as Its namesake beer, Schlitz was known as “The beer that made Milwaukee famous” and was advertised with the slogan “When you’re out of Schlitz, you’re out of beer”.   

The Clarion Auto Music system was one of the first auto audio systems to come onto the market during a time when automobile owners wanted a better sounding music system in their cars than just the standard radio that cam with a car…..which was advertised as being like “having a live concert in your car”.  

When we here at ImaSportsphile watch this video…..the television commercial for Crisco Shortening really brings back fond memories of our Granny cooking homemade apple, pecan and cherry pies with crust made from Crisco Shortening…..which makes our “mouths water” still today.   

Waverest Waterbeds dominated the waterbed market in Austin, Texas for several decades during the 1960’s and 1970’s…..which just happened to be where our Bone Daddy bought the waterbed he slept on for nearly 15 years back in the day.
