Sammy Davis Jr. Has Got The Ticket For Holiday Relief

It's Sammy Claus again! Here are some Christmas ads that Sammy Davis Jr. did for Alka-Seltzer. I love seeing all the ads out there featuring celebs promoting all sorts of products. Sammy not only did print ads, but also television commercials for Alka-Seltzer. I'm posting a Christmas one he did. I hope you like the ads and commercial. Take Sammy's advice this holiday season if you aren't feeling so well. :-)

I'm sorry to tell you this, but I might be having to get rid of my internet service. I know you told me that you're having trouble with yours. The reason I might be getting rid of mine is because things are really tight for my husband and I. We are cutting back on a lot of things to make it. I hope you will understand. I do enjoy your blog. If I ever get back online, I'll be sure to come back here.

Keith:
Love the ads and video...Sammy was one of those quintessential entertainers who was loved by people from all walks of like.
He could do it ALL..and he did it with STYLE!

They broke the mold when he was born...that's for sure.

Stay Cool.

Wow, that may be the first time I've ever seen Sammy without his 'stache. Great ads.

Thanks for the greeting over the weekend. We got about 6 inches of snow in my part of the country. Looks like we're going to have a white Christmas. Hope your week is going well!

Whatever it is that Sammy's on, it ain't Alka-Seltzer! He's feeling entirely too good to be worried about anything!

Merry Christmas, Keith.

Haha that first one of him on the sledge is amazing! Loving it :) Hope you're having a wonderful week.

These ads are incredible. I'm not sure if I remember any of them, but it sure looks like he had fun making them.

Hope your week is going well. Have a great day!

Love these adverts, especially the first two. We should all be that insanely happy!

FilmFather said...

That one with a 'stache-less Sammy is weird -- he looks like a completely different person. Still love him, though.

Happy holidays, Keith!
