Vintage Houston television commercials

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find another thread specifically for this, so here it goes...

After seeing the

commercial in another thread, I thought it would be neat to make a compilation of Houston television commercials.

Here are a few to get started:

(1989)

(1990)

and of course the awesome Colonial House commercials:

Thanks for starting this thread, Sevfiv! I provide the clips for the HoustonTVNews page, so the links are appreciated.

And for a bit of shameless self-promotion, a commercial featuring Elvin Hayes for Yellow Cab.

Also, I do take requests. Just ask, and I'll see if it's around here.

Another one from your channel with neat stuff - not a commercial, but KPRC promos from 1986.

Some familiar anchors, the Shamrock hotel makes an appearance, and I think I saw Lee Brown when he was the Chief of Police...

Wow, what a blast from the past! That promo was from shortly before I was born, but I DO remember that show at the end, "Love Connection", I think it hung on until the mid 90s when shows like Elimidate and Blind Date got popular.
