Santo Satisfies!

. Thursday, August 2, 2012



Steve and I depart today for the sinful Gomorrah that is New Orleans, so WAIW is packing it in a day early. In exchange, we leave you with this old Ron Santo commercial, the film faded to a glorious Polaroid redness. You know what hits me about it? The idea that, unknown to viewers at the time, Snickers was basically the guy's entire diabetes management system for a good while. Now you've got your Wilfred Brimleys and your testing supplies and what have you. Times have changed. Try not to think of it in terms of how since this commercial aired, the Cubs have only won the division 5 times. Instead, imagine Wilfred Brimley hocking Starburst.
