Ed McMahon endorsing the oil industry.

No, no, it's not what you think. Ed McMahon has passed on from this realm, he is not stumping for the modern day oil interests (ahem, I'm talking to you BP), but quaintly throwing his weight behind Citgo with a side of Nascar circa 1960something. As the ad says,

"I saw Nascar prove it! New Citgo Premium Gasolene cleans your carburetor as you drive. That's why you get more mileage, more power, more zzoooommm in every gallon of CITGO Premium!"

Spelling error aside... this is a pretty cool old ad. Who knew Mr. McMahon was a fan of the Nascar? This ad also makes me wish there really was such a thing as a car that cleans itself...
