In the midst of conversation with James St. James, I asked if he knew the Jack Stephan’s ads that ran in Los Angeles in the ’80s and ’90s (although it looked like they were filmed in the ’70s). “Stephan’s. JACK STEPHAN’S! We’re in the white pages!”
Sadly, I can’t find it online anywhere, but I did stumble upon dozens of uploaded commercials from home videos taped in the ’80s. What does it say about me that so much of this comes across as nostalgic? “Adee do,” the Stater Bros. Markets jingle, actually seeing Jenny Craig in her commercials, and I totally remember that Ajax commercial too.
