Great Commercial, Terrific Special Effects

My new favorite commercial, featuring the 1974 hit single by Andy Kim, Rock Me Gently. Everytime I see this, I have to laugh. Just proof that this is one of the great sing along songs of all time. The wolf is the absolute best.

By the way, Andy Kim's other claim to fame was a co-writer with Jeff Barry of the bubble gum pop hit single Sugar, Sugar, by The Archies. Another bit of pop trivia, the voice of The Archies had another simultaneous hit record in 1969. Ron Dante, the lead singer, was the anonymous voice of The Cufflinks and the hit record Tracy, along with numerous other pop records under various names during the period. He went on to produce records for Barry Manilow.
