A new magic commercial every day at...

Wow. Must have been hard to negotiate the rights for some of that older stuff. Fair play to you.

Great clip. How do you go about buying the copyright for an old TV commercial? Must be a mine field!

I was in a couple in my youth and would love to 'own' them. Is there a process or anything I should follow?

So who did you contact? The ad agency? The brewery? Paul himself?

I'd love to know. I was in an ad for Monopoly when I was younger and I would love to get the rights to it but don't know where to start.

Money isn't an object.

Just kidding Mr Goat. I wish you would relax for a decade or two. Let's just have some fun here. I held back my video collection for many years, as I was worried about copyright laws for years. The truth is, many advertising agencies hold the rights, and top firms don't mind if their client's get viewed on You-Tube.
If you are serious about owning the rights....I wouldn't know where to start. There are stock houses that specialize just in old spots. My library has 6 DVD's of old spots...1,000s! This would just get you a copy, maybe you already own a bit of it, because you were in it??
I think you derive pleasure from Goating people. I chose to ignore you from now on. Sorry, maybe other here like the confrontations, they drive me a little crazy, and you were the reason I left this forum for a year.

Sorry to be a bit dense, but he's the same Bob Dorian who for years was a movie host when AMC was commercial-free, right? Is he the same Bob Dorian who plays the Magic Castle from time to time?

The reason I ask is that I've seen (sometime in the last 12 months) an old photo from the Castle including (according to caption) "Robert Dorian." The guy in that pic looks nothing like the guy from Long Island.

It's not a commercial, but Toby Keith's videofor his song "Red Solo Cup" has Lance Burton doing a cup levitation (jump to 2:52 to see it).
