Documentary from 1974: Adland by TVTV

1974 documentary examining the advertising industry and the admen behind the ads. This excerpt features advertising guru George Lois, the filming of a McDonald's commercial and a bunch of overactive burger-muppets screaming merry x-mas which makes it so timely right now. There's also a bit from Mason Reese shilling Dressel's cakes and messing up his lines because he's hungry..."I want a sandwich", he quips between takes. Let him eat cake!

Since I know you guys would rather have this in Quicktime, go to to download the full hour in QT format.
