Nothing delights UnderCurrent more than coming across a little blast from the past – especially when it involves Australian retailers. Last year we took you through all the great advertisements from Dick Smith and Harvey Norman, but as it turns out, there was one more gem waiting to uncovered.
Enter Stan Cash.
If ever there was a greater “tin shed cowboy” then we’re yet to meet him.
Keep an eye out for some great Australian accents, a Michael Jackson Thriller-themed Velcro wallet and, potentially the best part of the video, the fellow on the left at the end (wearing the red and blue shirt) who is desperately trying not to miss his cue.
If only TV advertising would ditch the horrible “Save! Save! Save!” tagline and inject a bit more Stan Cash-cool into the mix.
