Jimmy Hughes and Ed Whalen - "Great Winter Boat Sale"

Postby albertaboy4life » Thu May 26, 2022 7:29 am

Longtime Calgary broadcaster turned realtor, Jimmy Hughes, posted an absolute gem on YouTube-


It's Jimmy, with the late Ed Whalen, pro wrestler Gil Hayes(?) and a young Bruce Hart refereeing in a TV commercial for the "Great Winter Boat Sale" at Neilson's.

It appears to have been shot on location in the Calgary Stampede's Victoria Pavilion in a Stampede Wrestling ring.

My guess is 1975 for the ads - one 60 seconds in length, the other a 30 second spot.

Please keep 'em coming, Jimmy!
