I shared this video in the Joe Paterno memories thread, but I thought it might be nice to share it here, too, since the thread is getting long and this format might allow more of us to have a trip down memory lane. I grew up in South Williamsport. He got all of our T.V. from the Scranton - Wilkes-Barre stations so this commercial was on quite often. I imagine it must have played on the Harrisburg and Altoona Johnston stations, too. I am not sure if folks in the Philly or Pittsburgh areas of PA ever saw it. Butterkrust Bakers is in Sunbury. They sold their Italian bread under the Milano name and had Joe pitch it for them. I loved Joe, but it always made me laugh to know that he was pitching mass produced Italian bread and calling it the "real Italian." Please, that stuff is fine, but it sure isn't the quality of the Italian bread we got in South Williamsport from New Lycoming Bakery which was right behind my house.
Anybody else remember this commercial?
