Need help? Try the Phonebook!


In this commercial for the GTE Phonebook, we discover that a Beverly Hills glass replacer gets most of his business from the yellow pages. I assume at least half of that phonebook business comes from a young and photogenic Kirk Cameron, who insists on knocking baseballs towards people’s homes.

If these are standard suburban homes, you know a window can’t be more that 100 feet away. So the question is, how could he not know he was going to break a window? If you ask me it seems like he is on the take from glass company. He probably gets a cut of each shattered window and counts on the charisma that he demonstrated in Growing Pains to get him out of paying for it himself. Clever boy.
