I think this is a young Peter Billingsley in this late seventies ad for Oreo cookies, but it is hard for me to tell because they keep crosscutting between him and this terrifying clown (redundant). Joking aside, this is a pretty cute commercial. The kid refuses to smile, even though this clown is bringing his “A game”. So what does the clown do? He pulls out a bag of Oreos from, I don’t know, his pants? Well it is somewhere off-camera in the direction of his pants. I guess it is best not to speculate.
This gets the kid to smile and they share a cookie moment together.
If I was the kid next to this kid, I would be thinking, “Where’s my cookie?”
