Telly knows how to bring the intensity to anything he sells and the 1982 Ford Escort was no exception. I have no memory of this commercial when it had its original run on TV, but I think I know who would, my Mother. My Mother LOVED Telly Savalas and would speak about him in such glowing terms that even as a young sprout I was uncomfortable. For at least a half a decade I was convinced I was going to one day come home to find my new dad was Telly Savalas.
Of course, I would never be able to live up to his level of cool and I would be a constant disappointment to my step-dad.
