The Unusual Flavor Of Thunderbird Wine

James Mason dips his ‘stache in the “unusual flavor” of Thunderbird in a 1950s TV commercial.  Quite a discovery, given the way I learned about Thunderbird’s advertising history was from my saxophone-playing Dad, who often sang:

What’s the word?  / Thunderbird!

What’s the price?  /  Fifty twice!

In keeping with the commercial’s Masonian tone, the soundtrack’s expected saxophone bleats have been replaced with pinkies-up vibes and vague jazz flute.  Mmm, unusual!
