Yes, this is a still from the late '70s when Broken Arrow-based QuikTrip was running ads on its QT-branded line of products, which included QT Beer and QT Lite. And yes, it's autographed by Ben Jones. And yes, that's Lamar the dog.
"QT" stood for Quittin' Time in this campaign, by the way. Which is the perfect name for a beer, if you ask me. I would have had a six pack or two in my fridge had I not yet to have come into existence. I wasn't even a twinkle in my parents' eyes in the late '70s.
If you'd like to take a trip down memory lane and relive the excitement that were these QuikTrip commercials, grab a copy of Jack Frank's Tulsa A-Z show. It's in the extra features part of the DVD and it's available at Dwelling Spaces.
Which was your favorite QT commercial starring Lamar? Would you like to see Lamar make a come back in a new QT commercial? Sound off in the comments.
Thanks to Jason Taylor for sending this photo. It made me laugh. Really hard.
