Thank you for that link, jon. Don't remember that ad but enjoyed seeing it. From 1978 or so?

Wonder if they ever got out of the boss' car. ;-) That is Keith James (Sr.) at the wheel isn't it?

Yep...and the astonished motorist near the end, in the other car, is Herm Harrison, former Stampeder, who became General Sales Manager at XL

Steve .. not sure if you're talking the same motorist ... but at :21, I'd swear that's PD Greg Haraldson

Naw, it's Herm fer sure.
I don't know if that's the REAL Keith James Sr. however.
The REAL Sr. would have said: "Get the @$%# out of my @$%#-ing car, you @$%#'d-up, @$%#-ing, @$%#-ers !!!
"You don't know man! I was in radio man! I've seen things you wouldn't believe!"
