Ron Knige ‘The Franz’ New Deal Skates Advert

Ron Knigge New Deal Skates Advert July 1992

Steve Martin did “The Jerk”
Eddie Murphy was “Delirious”
Richard Pryor didn’t know “Which Way Was Up”
but these orginal pranksters can’t come close to the new King of Comedy…

The Franz

Ronald “Franz” Knigge, touring in your home town soon…

This is a great example of a New Deal advert from a golden age. It took me a while to work out which company was running the advert. Which amuses me now, when I consider that I ended up working for them for eight years. But that was in the future when this advertisement appeared.

Move along now. There’s nothing more to be said here.
