You Know The Voice: Robert Ridgely (1971)

I posted this next item over at The Land of Whatever yesterday, and regular contributor Mike Doran pointed out that future cartoon star Robert Ridgely, who, at the time, was known for his work in movies and primetime television, was part of the cast in a 1971 McDonald's ad that got a ton of airplay any day of the week.

Said cast also includes Johnny Haymer (later of M*A*S*H) and John Amos (The Mary Tyler Moore Show and later of Good Times, Roots, & "Coming To America").



Who knew any of these guys could sing?

Yeah this ad was iconic.

Too bad you can't teach today's younger workers to be that enthusiastic.

The feeling is mutual.

If they can convince the kids to leave their phones at home when they go to work, since they're using them to get on social media during breaks instead of reserving those phones for emergencies, then there's hope.

Good suggestion.
