My Weekly Spock: Leonard the Spokesman

Nothing like commercial work to keep your bank account fluid between jobs! Nimoy was the logical choice for print ads in the 80’s and 90’s for everything from Oldsmobile to Toshiba! I have to laugh at the the Spockian Eyebrow in many of these– Of Course!  And a bonus ad here from the ’60’s, with a marvelous Star Trek graphic! Nimoy sold a lot of TV’s! Heck, he could sell me liver and onions!

1980’s Toshiba — in an IDENTICAL pose to the Magnavox! (Conflict of interest?)

Star Trek was great reason to get color TV in the '60's.  Here's a beautiful RCA ad that promotes Star Trek.
