Friday is a good day to look back. So, let’s look back to this 1936 Alka Seltzer testimonial ad. “Frank Watanabe” was a radio personality. And that flattering floating head caricature most certainly did not look anything like the real Frank Watanabe, since Watanabe was voiced by an actor named Eddie Holden, according to a commenter at vintage ads. NBC. Proud As A Peacock. One more thing: shouldn’t that be “AH” so? |Image: vintage ads|
