Original Magic Show TV Commercial from the Michael Grandinetti Collection

This  commercial featured above was originally broadcast on October 10, 1978, and features Doug’s replacement Joe Ablado in the lead role. While Doug may not appear in the ad itself, his presence can be felt in the poster, the songs, and of course the illusions themselves. 

So, enjoy this rare bit of Broadway TV magicana, and as the song itself says “Hey, can’t you just feel the strange excitement?”

Special Thanks to Michael Grandinetti
