Joe DiMaggio, Spokesperson for Mr. Coffee - 1978

| | Comments (4)


Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio never met a coffee maker he didn't like. Obviously, because he did about 392 different commercials for Mr. Coffee including the one above in 1978. Did you know that Joltin' Joe was singlehandedly responsible for giving out those $5 rebate coupons and it was legally required that all pretty girls give him a smooch in gratitude for his charitable ways? Look at all those cackling hausfraus sucking down the java like it was the nectar of the baseball gods!

Other interesting fact: if you serve me from a Mr. Coffee machine, I will bash you over the head with the glass carafe.

"if you serve me from a Mr. Coffee machine, I will bash you over the head with the glass carafe."

Sounds like someone needs to switch to decaf.

Rob prefers a Rene Lachemann French Press.

UU and I are old enough to recall that Joe plowed through every one of those bridge club ladies, and all on that very Tuesday. Do not question us on this.

Gorge, you are correct. I remember these commercials and I remember both sets of grandparents and my parents having a Mr Coffee coffee maker.
