  • 1981 vintage Tomica Pocket Cars commercial

    A post elsewhere about the Hot Wheels 1980 Cadillac Seville reminded me of the Tomica version of the Seville I first saw advertised on TV. It was advertised in a spot by actor Tom Poston, and there was another version, I think earlier, that had the Rolls Royce Phantom VI in place of the Seville. You can find the Rolls Royce version of the commercial here at around 1:03 (or watch the Burger King and Burnin' Key cars commercials too beforehand):

          I wonder if Tom Poston got paid in Tomica for this spot? I thought he was an unusual choice as spokesperson, but maybe it was geared more towards adults to buy for kids? While the Cadillac Seville version of the Rolls-Royce spot doesn't seem to be on Youtube, I still have one of my three original Sevilles. LOL, Tom Poston could be any one of us forty years on from the time of this broadcast!!!!!!
