    Interesting to note that Buster Keaton didn’t seem to have a exclusive deal to promote just one name brand vehicle or product. Advertising has dramatically changed over the decades, a typical commercial, one minute long, that told a story, as opposed to today’s advertising that bombards the viewer with split second images that leave you guessing as to the product being advertised.
    When these commercials were filmed in the 1960’s, Buster Keaton, having been a silent film star, was already at the end of his career, was still able to get work using a “Silent film” format to sell the product he was promoting, very clever advertising.
