Forgotten TV (?): Freeze-In (1969)

With Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In a huge hit, Sears-Roebuck decided that the best way to pitch their Kenmore freezer to their sales people was with an elaborate video presentation starring two Laugh-In cast members---Judy Carne and Arte Johnson.

The "informercial", if you will, starts on the familiar Laugh-In set with Judy, wearing a temporary Sears tattoo on her back, doing a dance routine.

From there, it's a time trip, as you can doubtlessly see. Too bad this was never made available to the general public until now.

Dedicated to the memory of Judy Carne, who passed away a week ago at 76. No rating.
