Haw! Haw! Try and get this Levi's song out of your head. This and the Nesbitt's Orange spot were two of my favorite TV commercials as a kid. I hope they brighten up your Friday a bit. (YouTube alert)

Cute. Why was the Levi's commecial mark by YouTube as inappropriate?

I love laughing songs. "Mule Skinner Blues," "Happy Go Lucky Me," The Okeh Laughing Record, Jim Backus's "Delicious"!

All great!

Damn hippie kid.

Seriously, that Levi's song's been rattling in my brain for the past 30-or-so years. Thanx for the hookup.

I don't know why they have the warning; I thought at first maybe this was some previously unaired version where the kid dropped trou or something, but nope. It looks G-rated to me.

I love posts like this so much.
Nice clips. I think I remember the Nesbitt's one -or some abreviated version of it.
Cool stuff.

That Nesbitt's ad is lovely. It's like a Zap Comic acid trip meets Dave Fleischer meets Leo Burnett.

I too am concerned about the inappropriateness factor. Maybe it was the Harold and Maude element, where the kid in his natty courderoys takes off with the octogenarian into the sunset...

EARWORM. I totally remember the jingle. And now it's STUCK IN MY HEAD.

I always think of this song when I see the words "haw haw". There was another ad though, with the kid stop-motioning up the side of a building. Very cool for the time.

Man, I'd totally forgotten that jingle, though it was clearly lurking in my subconcious when I become obessed with the song Muleskinner Blues around 1990.

So was pretty much everyone on acid in the 70s? 'Cause that's what I got from that.
