Stumbled across this 1967 TV ad for Bufferin yesterday. It was filmed by Jim Henson and you’ll certainly notice the voice over work for the lead actor is handled by Jim himself. The music by the way was composed and performed by none other than Raymond Scott! The photo you see up top is a behind the scenes shot from when Jim and Raymond were working on the ad.
A huge thanks to Jim’s Redbook for sharing this on YouTube.
