“My baby gets Antifreeze”


We are saddened by the passing of Oscar®-winning actor Jack Palance, and he even has a brief comics-ish kind of connection by having hosted RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT back in the day.

But while ya’ll find Youtube to be a source of wonders, it just frustrates us. We have dim memories of Palance starring in a commercial for — we believe — some kind of chunky soup where he talked about his satisfaction with finally finding a sodium-laden canned soup that included “vegetables I can identify.” However, we could find only this Prestone Anti-freeze commercial on Youtube.

Did we misremember the indentifiable vegetables spot? Did it ever exist? Help us not be crazy. Please.

    Never mind the soup. According to the filmography I was just looking at he was in a film of Outlaw Of Gor. They made a film of these soft porn barbarian fantasies and no one told me? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

  3. That little beauty made it to Mystery Science Theater 3000, back in the day. And lovely fodder it was.

  4. A more important comic connection Palance had was getting glocked by the Joker in Burton’s Batman!

    I remember the commercial too. Was it for Campbell’s Chunky Vegitable Beef?
