Circuit City Stores, now close to a national retailer, announces its move into New York with comparative spots -- commercials that compare its prices and service to those of stolen merchandise. In one humorous ad from DeVito/Verdi, a man selling TVs from the back of a truck pulls away as a police siren wails.

Copywriters: Abi Spencer, Aaron Eiseman, Bob Fremgen, Leslie Sweet, Rich Ostroff. Art directors: Abi Spencer, Aaron Eiseman,
