Vintage Dr Pepper Commercial

Yes, I’ve been back on YouTube mooching about and I found this little gem from the late ’70s advertising Dr Pepper. The ad itself isn’t that special, though it’s all very happy and jolly, but take a close look at the main actor…

Recognise him? If you’re of a certain age you might – it’s the star of horror film An American Werewolf in LondonDavid Naughton! So that’s what he did before getting all toothy and hairy…

Looking a lot happier in this commercial than he did in the film, not surprisingly. After all, who doesn’t love a Dr Pepper! We’ve got original Dr Pepper, Dr Pepper Cherry and diet versions of both in right now! 🙂
