Johnathan Winters Wendy’s Commercial


We did not have any Wendy’s restaurants near me growing up. I only heard about them second-hand from friends whose families took road trips through Wendy’s territory. Knowing this, I am not sure why I remember this ad with Johnathan Winters, but I know it well. Could they have broadcast it in an area that lacked a place you could get the food or was it re-broadcast later on or on one of those “best of” commercial TV shows hosted by Dick Clark or Ed McMahon in the 1980s? I guess it will always be a mystery to me.

Enjoy this very creative commercial…Hot N Juicy! Hot N Juicy!
