Has Dunn's hit hard times? I haven't seen any Jerry Lawler Dunn's Transmission ads in years...I can't drive by a Dunn's without thinking of Lawler. On a 'currently residing in the where are they now' note, did anyone see Keith "Dana Kirk paid me with a shoebox full of money to go to Memphis State!"* Lee last fall doing a Brim's pork rinds ad on tv!!! That was truly Memphis. Lee probably made over $100 doing that ad.
In the '80s, Jolly Royal had the best radio ads ever. Lots of southern non-sequitorial stories that went nowhere, using phrases like
'that peckerwood never knew the difference. Now, friends, head on over to Jolly Royal.' Kinda made me feel like it musta been to grow up here in the '50s.
By the way, advertisers, I'll buy anything Lance Russell or Jimmy Hart pushes.
