Early Esso Gasoline Commercial


This circa 1950s Esso Gasoline commercial is wonderfully simplistic. It has clean simple animation, minimalist musical sound effects and almost 40 seconds into this 60 second piece, a small very focused message done via great VO. Just a great commercial. They don’t make them like this anymore
