Dick Clark for the Dairy Queen Blizzard


I am not sure how many takes Mr. Clark had to do for this commercial. He had a reputation as a pro, so I can’t imagine it was too many. So I am left wondering, why the fake Blizzard tasting at around the 23 second mark? I know he has a follow-up line, but the lip smear is very different from a taste and it makes it seem like Clark just ain’t all that interest in that Blizzard.
