Lick My Decals Off, Baby telly ad

Well this is pretty special.

A television advertisement was made, shown, audiences were angered and then it was banned.

As Ry Cooder comments in The Artist Formerly Known As Captain Beefheart, nowadays it could be an ad for toothpaste.

      You’re right: it was Ry Cooder, not John French; now corrected. Many thanks!
