Mason Reese. Post Raisin Brand Commercial.

I just have the funny feeling that when the ad execs cast Mason Reese in this 1975 Post Raisin Bran commercial they knew he was kind of goofy.

They must have. Probably some kind of cruel inside joke.

Stupid, cocky mid 70's ad execs.

Oh no!!! You played the dreaded Mason Reese card! Worse than that whole 2012 Mayan calander thing.

Westchesterdead - it is kind of like torture to watch it isn't it?

Dr Zibbs said...

And one more thing. Why didn't someone have him blow his nose?

Listen to that nasal voice.

I never really thought of it, but you're right. Something a little "off" about that kid. Wonder where he is now.

B.E. Earl said...

He now owns restaurants in NYC.

And he doesn't serve a smorgasbord, go figure.

GAH! That was a face from the past that should have stayed there. WHAT THE FUCK!

Gage said...

I strongly recommend you NOT check out his Wikipedia entry like I did... he did not get better with age!

Wings said...

Gage, your comment came too little too late. I surfed over there, too. NOT a good idea.

I think he was trying to ride the coattails of Danny Bonaduce.

Dr Zibbs said...

Thanks for warning me not to go to Wikipedia but of course I couldn't help myself.

diane said...

How about a stronger warning, like DO NOT WIKEPEDIA THIS GUY UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR EYEBALLS SINGED!!
Omg, seriously, I almost fell out of my chair. Nothing can prepare you for that.

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - Wikipedia should have a warning like, "OK..now are you sitting down? Are you SURE you want to see this?..

phd in yogurtry said...
