Joe Kapp in MNF commercial
Did any else watch the entire carnage that was the 2nd half of the Jets/Patriots game on Monday night? Thanks to the wonders of TiVo I had it going today as I worked in my office.
since it was the last MNF game on ABC there were reminiscing about all the old footage etc and one of the things the showed was the first commercial ever on MNF, it showed Joe Kapp and Len Dawson in a testimonial commercial for Gilette Platnium Plus Blades. They were sitting there in some kind of cheesy silky looking jackets over their pads presumably that looked like the word VIKINGS and Kapp's name looked like they were ironed on by someone who was drunk. It just amazes you how production values of commercials (as with everything else) have changed over the years.
