This post in Consumerist.com about great moments in commerical history (with vid of a great Memphis commercial), reminded me of some priceless commercials that aired in the DC area when I was a kid: The original Jhoon Rhee karate commercials that start with two kids saying "Nobody bother me!" and "Nobody bother me either!" (the commercial was later updated to put the kids at the end, but the original is the best) and my absolute fave, the ads for Mr. Ray's Hair Weave, featuring the voice of Mr. Ray himself. I've looked around to see if I can find the videos online, but alas, I cannot. (But I did discover that John Waters had attempted to get Mr. Ray to narrate Pink Flamingos, but Mr. Ray refused. I love John Waters.)
You know that in some closet somewhere in the DC area there sit stacks of old videotapes full of episodes of "Dynasty" or "Space, 1999" and peppered throughout with classic Jhoon Rhee and Mr. Ray's commercials. Please someone, dig out those tapes, digitize the ads and post them online for the benefit of all humanity!
