Commercial Throwback: Billy Dee Williams for Colt 45

This is a great ad, one that would certainly not be allowed to air today. Best line of the commercial: “I don’t claim you can have a better time with Colt 45 than without it, but why take chances?” Oh, and the tagline is great too: “The power of Colt 45 — it works every time.”

In an age of responsible drinking advertisements, this commercial is a relic of an older time. Plus Billy Dee Williams is awesome.
