How Bad Do You Miss Uncle Leonard?

Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2011 at 12:07 AM

This week's feature, "Pitch Sessions," revisits the quirky, self-produced local TV ads from the 1980s and 90s.



Not only do I remember Uncle Leonard Lewis' corny one-liners on TV: I once spotted him at the Arena in between periods of a Blues Game. My dad let me go talk to him. I can't recall the dialogue. Nor can I fathom what a nine-year-old would want to communicate to this man. But I remember him being cool about the whole thing.



By the way, these two spots were the only ones we could dig up on YouTube.

If you can find any others, feel free to post the links in the comments (there's definitely one out there with Brett Hull).
