This commercial is from 1981, but it already has the quick cuts and leaping in and out of shadow that would make become standard practice in a lot of advertising and music videos. Because it leaps around so much it is hard to tell at times, but Leonard is sporting a very well manicured mustache.
While I tend to always associate Nimoy appearances in ANYTHING with Spock, I do not in this commercial. Maybe it is because he is in shadow much of the time, but whenever I watch this I feel a more “In Search Of” tone.
