Tim Allen in a pre-“Home Improvement” Ad for K-mart

Tim Allen was just a working comedian when he landed this small role in a K-mart commercial. The commercial had a very short run, supporting the 1985 Christmas season, but for some reason, maybe it was his star quality, this commercial stuck in a lot of people’s minds. Enough so that when Home Improvement finally hit the airwaves over 5 years later, my Mother referred to him as the guy from that Sears’ commercial.
