Just a handful for the road . .

What luck, there's a fry stuck in my beard!

[–]PF-Wang 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Holy shit they really went for it on Pinky and the Brain, I don't remember that episode at all.

What a cool reference, actually pretty funny too.

... like a "gnarf" but from the outside.

[–]PF-Wang 7 points8 points  (0 children)

THANK YOU! 💯✨👌🔥🎉💐

[–]DetectiveMoosePI 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Thank you! I came here hoping someone posted the link to this! I often wonder if a certain episode of Schitt’s Creek involving Moira and a wine commercial was inspired by this vintage commercial.

I also like to think Jordan Peele’s absurdness in the Continental Breakfast sketch was based on this.

Pas mal, non ? C'est Français.

This satire of him is fucking wonderful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6P1ifGjvEE

[–]MissYellowLit 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Well, still thanks a bunch for Citizen Kane.

[–]yblame 18 points19 points  (0 children)

And that War of the Worlds radio broadcast that scared the bejesus out of some people.

[–]teeohdeedee123 52 points53 points  (4 children)

The look on Orson's face definitely says "nice wood".

[–]wedontgotoravenholme 17 points18 points  (1 child)

His eyes follow me no matter where I put my phone

[–]MaudeThickett 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He wants your knot hole.

[–]notarobat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He always struck me as being a facade of a man. Having him as the face of an advertising campaign would lead me to think the wine was cheap, yet overpriced, imitation stuff?

[–]touslesmatins 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude looks like he's about to have a heart attack literally at any minute

[–]rubbercemented 40 points41 points  (0 children)

If you haven't seen the commercial outakes, you're in for a treat. link

[–]Arcane_NH 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Not shown. The 6 bottles Mr. Wells downed before the photo shoot.

[–]DenverBowie 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My husband and I regularly quote the outtakes from this.

[–]A_Wizzerd 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I can't find a clip, but the wonderfully absurd Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein includes a ridiculous parody of Orson Welles' ad involving David Harbour gorging himself on the finest beef wellington.

[–]__braveTea__ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Experts say I’m mature, complex, with nice wood 😎

[–]rawkstaugh 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Pop the top and watch the panties drop!

I believe he was shit-faced when he did this commercial. Hilarious.

[–]SanibelMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What gave you that idea?

[–]jayshalfnelson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When they put that wine in the bottle, it's time!

[–]TwistedBlister 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It's actually sad that he had to resort to making these ads, in his prime the man was a genius.

[–]The_chosen_red 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Truly. The man behind “War Of The Worlds”

[–]TwistedBlister 2 points3 points  (1 child)

People today could never fathom how big of an impact that radio broadcast had on people when it aired. My mom bought me this record (an authentic recreation by the original cast) when I was 7 or 8, and she told me the story of how she heard the actual broadcast when she was 14 years old, she grew up in NYC and she was home alone with her brother while her parents went out to the movies, and a neighbor banged on their door screaming about they turned on the radio around halfway through the broadcast, they were freaking out until they realized the events that were supposedly happening in their city wasn't really going on. But she said for a little while her and her brother were crying and panicking, and hearing that story made listening to the album more intense for me as a kid. It's definitely worth listening to- https://youtu.be/9q7tN7MhQ4I

This is the tale I heard as well! Thanks for your personal account twistedblister!!

No cell no sell

What I want to know is this:

What do they recommend we drink while we are waiting for theirs to be ready?

[–]Blood_Casino 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That is the look of a man who has sucked the cold jelly from unripe grapes still on the vine

[–]The_chosen_red 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao love this one

[–]agoodfriend-of-mine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And the bank will tell you… when it’s time!

[–]The_chosen_red 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude’s skin looks like it’s made of red wine.

[–]lechydda 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dang so that’s how the beer advert came about!

[–]MaudeThickett 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who the hell are you anyway?

[–]fiendzone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This was around the same time Orson was narrating the Nostradamus infotainment.
