Film Friday: The 1965 Chevrolets through the eyes of 60's TV stars

Earlier this week we wrote about Jeep's new Cherokee ad that ran during Saturday Night Live and starred

cast members from Saturday Night Live. Jeep called it a “cast commercial” and apparently it had some precedent.

We did a little digging and found this 5-minute spot on the new Chevy's for 1965 featuring the stars of “Bonanza,” “Bewitched” and “Man from Uncle.”

“This is the '65 Corvette Sting Ray,” says Pernell Roberts from "Bonanza." “Looks like it means business, and it does. New this year, disc brakes all around.”

The commercial also features Robert Vaughn talking about the 1965 Chevy Corvair, “with a telescoping steering column!” Later “Bewtiched” stars Elizabeth Montgomery and Agnes Moorhead extol the virtues of the 1965 Chevelle.

It's all pretty cheesy, like most old ads, but we do appreciate the goofy '60s mood music and effects. There are a bunch more like it in the related video section, and a handful of them are worth checking out.
