Wrestling’s Captain Lou Albano got in on the 1-900 recorded hotline biz back in the 1980s and this commercial would run during many of the after school cartoons I watched at the time.
But that wasn’t the only ad for this service. No, a rubber-banded Captain Lou shouted hit way through many an ad. Here are two others I was able to find online.
Check out the size of that BIG phone…
In this one you get a cameo from The Wild Samoans and Chief Jay Strongbow…
Sadly I was not able to find any audio of the actual calls, but I will keep looking.
