Before Full House Bob Saget and Dave Coulier did a commercial for Elias Brothers Restaurants

Before they became famous working together on the TV show “Full House”, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier starred in a commercial for the regional Big Boy Restaurant Franchisee, Elias Brothers. The ad is actually pretty clever. They do some classic shtick related to their guilt at returning to the endless all you can eat buffet finally culminating in dressing up as a horse to get some delicious garlic bread (naturally).

This commercial ran at about the same time Coulier was starring in the cult classic, “Out of Control”. I wonder if he filmed this before landing that role or if his appearance on that show helped him land this gem?
