It looks like Uncle Ben may be getting an update as well.
So I was watching a Carson episode from 1971, and there was this commercial https://youtu.be/qCzUKeztFpQ
presented by Ed. Well, first thing I noticed is that the Uncle Ben image isnt there!

And this is when I learned that in 1971 the image was removed, and stayed off of the brand's packaging until 1983!

That one is odd! I never saw such a snappy Budweiser commercial!

The singer on the phone reminds me of Steve Martin.

Yes, he does look like Steve Martin!

So many questions here: Why is Ed conducting from the piano when he never plays? Why does somebody keep calling while they are playing? And why does he answer? And why is there a phone there? Mysteries, mysteries... :D

Here's a commercial for Tang from 1973. It's not particularly special, except the caption says that she is Gail Theis, PhD from Saddle River, NJ. That's the town over from where my mom grew up, (Saddle Brook) and we used to go to Saddle Brook pretty frequently when I was growing up.
