I've Had All I Can Stand and I Can't Stand No More. Hilarious!!!!!

Ralph Williams was a Big Time car salesman in the SF area!

During the late 60s, most television programs and commercials
were live. There were no "pre-recorded" programs. There were
some obvious problems with this method.
No "retakes" and "bloopers" were a regular occurrence.
He quit right after this commercial.
This is no blooper! This guy was just very upset with
his boss andtold it like he thought it was. What a great
job of ad-libbing. He never misses a beat while, if you
listen carefully, you'll hear the cameraman and
soundman lose it at the end.
This commercial only aired once, and it is a great one.

Jeff,
"Remember, if you want to get f**ked real hard just once, why not let Ralph Williams do it......" You know, the bald headed prick in the picture...... The salesman doing the ad immortalized himself forever. :)

I'm sure most of us have thought up stuff like this and maybe shared it with a select few but this is the real deal. What a classic. Thank you.

Jim,
The hoot is it was live and they couldn't have stopped it if they wanted to. The salesman could hardly contain himself thinking, "the bald headed sob in the picture, Ralph Williams" is going spit up on himself when he see's this. The camera men had to just let the camera's roll and enjoy the moment. I've had more then a few conversations with John Cuneo over the years rivaling this, but neither one of us laughed much. :)
