Shillin' with the Lone Ranger: Aqua Velva aftershave ad (1970s)

With The Lone Ranger in syndication during the 70's, a few advertising executives were able to lure Clayton Moore & Jay Silverheels into a reunion doing some commercials. Silverheels went solo for one spot, a truck ad which we'll show another time, and made a rare guest appearance on The Brady Bunch.

Here, Moore & Silverheels shill for Aqua Velva aftershave. The announcer is Fred Foy, who was the best known announcer on Lone Ranger, and at the time this was made, he was Dick Cavett's announcer on ABC.

We'll have a legendary ad for Jeno's Pizza Rolls, directed by Stan Freberg, up soon, as well.
