THE BIG PUSH:
To be or not to be a Klondike lover
What would William Shakespeare do for a Klondike bar? As it turns out, he would pen a sitcom, in the new campaign for the ice cream novelty marketed by Unilever's Good Humor/Breyers Ice Cream. At the end of the spot from Ogilvy & Mather, Chicago, the bard is joined by the "precocious punk" for his new work-Gary Coleman of "Diff'rent Strokes" fame. In another spot, the Mona Lisa cracks an ear-to-ear grin for a Klondike. She also dons a sombrero to tout the Klondike Choco Taco. Copywriter: Joe Kaminski. Art director: David Straus.
