A Mustachioed Leonard Nimoy for Magnavox Televisions

This commercial is from 1981, but it already has the quick cuts and leaping in and out of shadow that would make become standard practice in a lot of advertising and music videos. Because it leaps around so much it is hard to tell at times, but Leonard is sporting a very well manicured mustache.

While I tend to always associate Nimoy appearances in ANYTHING with Spock, I do not in this commercial. Maybe it is because he is in shadow much of the time, but whenever I watch this I feel a more “In Search Of” tone.
