Tony Randall and Jack Klugman for Eagle Ranch Tortilla Chips

The chemistry between Tony Randall and Jack Klugman was so great that I am surprised they were not used for more advertising. Here you see them in an ad for Eagle Ranch Tortilla Chips where Tony pretends not to know Jack who as it turns out LOVES Eagle’s chips so much better that he does even need to try the other brand. I would think that Jack’s alter ego from the Odd Couple would know a good chip, so it makes me wish I had tried Eagle.

Eagle was actually a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch and I have heard tell that some of their products are still out there or have been picked up under a different company (River West Brands). I will need to investigate.
