You Get a Light Touch of Bob Barker in This Compilation
This collection of Belair commercials has a number of familiar ones featuring Raleigh coupons, a couple of clips from game shows where the hosts did the Belair commercials, one really dorky spot featuring sketches instead of live action models, and a couple of brief bumpers. This makes for a fun assortment, with the game show commercials adding historical interest.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.

It all adds up (cough)
Great collection of commercials here! Bel-Airs, I thought wereÂnt made anymore (I was mistaken), but they of course canÂt be advertised with having Raleigh coupons anymore! No siree! This was almost the MAIN point for buying these cigarettes (othen than the Âpure white modern filterÂ. And what CAN you get with these Raleigh coupons? I was quite amused when an announcer said that they Âjust add upÂ. Yeah, just like lung cancer cells. Anyways, as a bonus, we get segments from unknown game shows from the 50Âs! The host breaks to shill bel-airs, and then goes back to the show. Neat! Also, there are some bumpers, which I love, and some silent ads! Great!
