Isn't that Bosley, the guy from Charlies Angels in the commercial with Arnold Palmer?

I tried to find that new retro commerical that one of the Northern California Cougar clubs filmed a few years ago. Anyone have a link to it?

Steven,
I'm sure that this was not the spirit in which you intended, so I have to confess. I voted for the GT-E, but not because it was my favorite commercial. In fact, I didn't even watch any of the others. Sorry.

1963 Thunderbird Z code - raven black/red
1968 XR7 F code - diamond blue/blue

At the end of the GT-E spot the driver gets out of the car and his pants are about half way up his calf.... Was that really in style back then?

Scott here is the link I think your asking about. It was done by Dennis Pierachini. His new retro commercials are well done.

In the Arnold Palmer ad, when the silly guy is talking about the features and says "stick" and touches the automatic gear selector, that's pretty funny. Same in the '69 ad. Apparently "stick" didn't used to mean manual transmission. Learned something new today!

I like the GTE ad because it's got the most badass Cougar of them all driving slowly around bends on a winding dirt road. And the music is pretty great. But I have to go with the 68 XR7 ad, for even better music.

Honorable mention goes to the G ad for the woman pounding her fist on the roof to knock out the sunroof panel she just cut. Very Rosie!!

Ok I really messed up. I added all of the above and it wiped out all of the votes. I'll send a PM to Bill and see if he can add the votes back. Here is a photo showing the votes up to the point of me messing up the totals.
