Dean Martin Advertises A Telephone Credit Card

Dean Martin did advertising for various companies over the years. It was a win-win situation for both Dino and these companies. Any business would have been wise to hire the King of Cool to pitch their products. They were sure to bring in plenty of Dino fans, who would buy their product or use their service because Dino recommended it. Plus I'm sure Dino enjoyed the money and other perks that he received for these endorsements deals.

Isn't there a market for collecting phone cards? I must check ebay..

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. Glad I could introduce you to a pic you hadn't seen before. I thought it was really cool. Any product Dino advertises is a product that Dino fans are going to want to support.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Not sure. There probably is though.

What a funny ad for a telephone company! I love the fact that you can see only his bow tie and his pink ring! So there was a time in history that people did not have cell phones? I can hardly remember! LOL Great ad!

Allison said...

Who knew that this existed?! So fun, thanks for posting, Keith :)

Hey, Keith! Good job as usual posting GREAT stuff here... My dad used to frequent a bar or two in his day, & took me to a couple when I was old enough to order a "Roy-Rogers". Anyway, back around '59, at one bar; The Bat Rack, in Santa Monica, we went in & Dino himself was there! Nice guy, As I recall.

Digging his bow tie.

Hey jbfunky. That's cool that you saw something about this ad. I never did. Yeah, Dino can make anything look cool. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Mirko. Thanks for the comments. Glad you enjoyed that ad. I thought it was neat the way they did the pics of him. It is hard to believe now that there was a time that nobody had a cell.

Keith said...

Thanks Allison. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks La C. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Timmy. Thanks for the comments. I definitely wanted to post more of the pics you sent me. I think I've got posts set up for like the next week. That's so cool about the bar. Wow! I would love to have seen Dino. Cheers!

Keith said...

Me too, Scott.

DINO-GAL said...

OH WOW....I LOVE THIS AD! DINO WAS SUCH A GAS!

Keith said...

Hey pallie Terri. You are so right on that. This is cool.
