magicians in commercials

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Hi--I have come to learn that some magic enthusiasts like to hear every instance when magicians are on t.v. and or commercials: here are 3 recent ones I've seen as a heads up for you video snippet collectors:

Robitussin cough syrup: magician changes silks into a foulard which subsequently changes

Ritz crackers: toward the end, a 1970s-style mime-like street magician pulls a ritz out of a spectator's ear, then via computer graphics flourishes more crackers...

Finally, the commercials for the "Houdini corkscrew"...

That is all. So long...

Icy Hot gel--a pain-relieving rub.

They mention the magician's name at the beginning of the add, but I was not quick enough for it to register...

dunkin' donut commerical.

not exactly sure if he did magic in
all the TV commericals and print ads.

the sterotypical chinaman.
