I’m sure many of you have seen the Minolta camera television commercial that Doug did in conjunction with this campaign. The commercial itself is a lot of fun, while this newspaper caricature is a little, how do I put this, interesting to say the least. To compare the two, here’s the original once again in all its 1970s glory:

I don’t know about you, but I prefer the genuine article. Anyway, whether in a newspaper or TV, for a brief amount of time Doug Henning and Minolta were the best of friends. 

The above newspaper ad comes from “The Michigan Daily” and is dated February 8, 1979
