Jason Alexander’s 1980’s Western Union Commercial

I must have seen this commercial dozens of times in the eighties, but if you were to ask me who starred in it, I would have drawn a blank. Jason Alexander keeps popping up in commercial after commercial lately, it makes me wonder just how many he did.

What I remember most about this ad was the interplay between Alexander and the giant police officer. What great casting.

Looking at it now, I am curious as to what computer is being used in this commercial?
