One of the most famous pitchmen from the early days of television. If he owned a car dealership in your area, you'll never forget his wild commercials featuring himself and "his dog Spot."

Here's a compilation video featuring his famous commercial jingle (written by himself) and showing several of his dogs Spot.

I'd buy a car from someone who is willing to go wing walking for his cause.

And, sure enough, his commercials are STILL running, even after his death. Saw a couple of them last night.

I Used to watch his commercials early Saturday mornings on KTLA. They always made me laugh because of how cheesy they were.

But, he left an impression and people remembered him. As soon as I saw the title of this thread, I knew exactly who it was about.
