This commercial from 1977 captures a young Robin Williams right before he went huge as Mork on the hit TV show, “Mork & Mindy”. Williams plays a husband who with his sort of Pam Dawber-esque wife shops for and riffs on the various styles of phone available from Illinois Bell in the mid-seventies. I imagine this commercial shoot generated a lot of outtakes that were probably pretty hilarious.
A great gem of an ad…
