And a not so impressive animatronic shark…

Oddly enough, the same day that a modern-day animatronic shark shows up on YouTube, so does a 1976 commercial featuring a shark with some not-so-special effect, courtesy of YouTube user OldTimeSportsFan.

I’m not really sure what the underlying message is behind this Colt 45 commercial (I prefer the Billy Dee Williams era Colt 45 ads, personally). Apparently, if a shark eats your table out in the ocean, a woman will deliver some Colt 45 to you. I’m thinking the advertising minds were trying to cash in the recent success of “Jaws” and just wanted to put a shark in the commercial.
