Vincent Price can even make a Glass of Milk seem Terrifying

Here is the problem with casting Vincent Price in a role where he is not supposed to be terrifying, I keep waiting for it. Throughout this ad, Price plays the lovable Grandfather-like figure, but all I keep hoping for is the other shoes to drop. Was the milk poisoned? Is this little girl actually a killer robot or the ghost of a girl who drown in the Sutter’s Ol’ Mill Pond?

Sadly none of that happens, but it is still a great bit of advertising from an entertainment legend.
