International House of Pancakes: The Early Years

"Of course it says pancakes on the outside," intones the only normal person in this 1969 ad, "but there's a Lot more on the inSiDe." Hmmm. . .I wonder what he means? The whole family seems to be in very high spirits after their meal there.

Thanks, AdFreak!

I see you've found one of Aphex Twin's earlier works when he was just a jingle writer.

Ok so..to sum up: 1)Family run through field (for inexplicable reason) with tons of balloons (for inexplicable reason) to oddly space-age background music...being sung by... 2)..singer, who inhaled helium from leftover balloons (for inexplicable reason)...before family sits down to.... 3)Dine, with facial expressions bordering on the "I have seen God and her name is Maple Syrup" beatific, on what looks more like enchiladas with blood sauce than pancakes. ....(gotta love Lileks.com for permanently ruining my perceptions of 1950s-1970s food photographs, looove that site) Puddlesworth may be right... or am I the only one that thinks this commercial takes on a WHOLE NEW level of awesomeness if the viewer is stoned out of their box at the time?
