TV Ads – 1983 – The Yellow Rose Night Club + Cliff Haby For Nissan Cars + KTVV Ch 36


The Yellow Rose is the premier gentlemen’s club in Austin, Texas….and has been since 1983 when this television commercial was aired. It remains the #1 hot spot for live adult entertainment….while providing patrons with the world’s most beautiful entertainers….plus a five star kitchen service that is locally known for their grilled steaks and a comfortable club atmosphere. The Yellow Rose has been the top liquor sales establishment in Austin, Texas for nearly 40 years.

In the wake of the 1973 oil crisis…consumers worldwide….especially in the U.S. market) began turning to high-quality small economy cars….which Nissan had in their Datsun and Nissan lines….so, meet the growing demand for its new Nissan cars…..the company built new factories in Mexico….as Nissan Mexicana has been manufacturing since 1966 at their Cuernavaca assembly facility….which was essentially Nissan’s first North American assembly plant….plus building plant ins Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, United States (Nissan Motor Manufacturing Corporation USA was established in 1980) and South Africa.  Nissan’s initial assembly plant Smyrna assembly plant first built only trucks such as the 720 and Hardbody…. but has since expanded to produce several car and SUV lines to include the Altima, Maxima, Rogue, Pathfinder, Infiniti QX60  and the Leaf all-electric car. 

The pitch man for this 1983 Nissan trucks and cars ad, Cliff Haby, is a long-time friend of Bone Daddy….who accompanied the original Sportsphile on several of his “magic carpet rides” to major sporting events….as he was the designated driver and key contacts person to BD….of which Haby provided the person on the ground in Los Angeles for the 1984 Olympics trip….so, several of the tall tales that I tell in our L E’s Stories section of our vintage museum would never have happened without Haby’s contacts.   

When it comes to KTVV Channel 36 in Austin….it was the local NBC affiliate for the area in and around Austin, Texas….so, over the life of Bone Daddy’s bar (18 years)….many of the videos that are seen here at ImaSportsphile were aired on Channel 36….so, we thank them so very much for such wonderful content.
