During the YO episode “Summer Holiday”, Alexie Sayle as Jerzy Balowski was giving a sales pitch for his “Jerzy Homes”, during which he pointed out, “And we don’t need to use some old actor flying upside down in a helicopter to sell you a Jerzy Home!”
The audience guffawed at that, so I can only assume that some company did use some old actor flying upside down in a helicopter to sell whatever their product was. Now, I realize that this is a very long shot, that anyone would remember a commercial that was overplayed in 1984, but it’s been eating at me almost that long (allowing for the fact that TYO didn’t appear on US TV until '85), and I’m finally asking about it here. And heck, I can remember a lot of TV commercials, sometimes spontaneously, sometimes with a bit of prodding.
So can anyone help me out? Greatly appreciated!
