My favorite of Dudebro’s Adult Swim Station ID’s

Here on a site called Bumpworthy, you can see Dudebro playin’ it up, far out on the rings of a disco Saturn:

Kodak Disc Christmas Commercial, 1983.

This was always one of my favorite Christmas commercials..maybe because it had puppets! Alas, the Kodak Disc camera did not last. Disc film did not prove hugely successful, mainly because the image on the negative was only 11 mm by 8 mm, leading to generally unacceptable grain and poor definition in the final prints. The film was intended to be printed with special 6-element lenses from Kodak, but many labs simply printed discs with standard 3-element lenses used for larger negative formats. The resulting prints often disappointed the consumer.

The film was officially discontinued by the last manufacturer, Kodak, on December 31, 1999, though the cameras had disappeared from the market long before then. I see them at Goodwill on occasion.

The Aflac Duck.

AFLAC Duck

The Aflac Insurance Duck is voiced by Gilbert Gottfried and created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.The duck concept and all of the commercials to date have been created by Kaplan Thaler Group, an advertising agency based in New York City. Struggling to come up with a concept to make the big but relatively obscure insurance company’s name memorable, one of the agency’s art directors stumbled upon the duck idea while walking around Central Park at lunchtime uttering, “Aflac, Aflac.” He soon realized how much the company’s name sounded like a duck’s quack. The Aflac Duck character has now starred in more than 30 commercials.(source: Wikipedia)
