Reach out and Touch Someone – Bell System [1979]

Well here it is the day before Christmas and I don’t know about you but to me nothing says “Holidays” like creepy clowns making long-distance phone calls. So harken back to the days when phones had cords and slogans like “Reach out and Touch Someone” didn’t have really uncomfortable subtexts.

Like a warm fire and the checkerboard, La-Z-Boy chairs have become a part of the American home. La-Z-Boy means comfort, quality and value that endures. We wouldn’t have lasted over fifty years if the pepole didn’t trust the La-Z-Boy name. Millions of Americans enjoy their La-Z-Boy chairs every day. Haven’t you lived without one long enough? See the La-Z-Boy difference in quality reclining chairs wherever fine furniture is sold.

La-Z-Boy was founded in the 1920s and is still in business today. Does this ad make you want to buy one or vomit all over one?
