    Newscenter 4 Closeup Story: "Down & Out, the Story of Hawaii's Streetpeople"
    hosted by Emme
    And here we are 26 years later and what stories are we seeing/reading? Why, homeless people rousted from Ala Moana Beach Park and staying at Kawaiahao Church.

    Some of you old-timers may remember that a TV SPOT for the old Lollipop Lounge strip club, complete with dancers and "clientele" was shot in the KITV studio and actually aired (late night) ... before it was yanked (due to viewer complaints) and those involved in its production were suspended briefly.

    It was 1980 or '81, as I recall.

    No extra kudos if you remember the song that was used for the spot, however, as it was too obvious a choice. (Yes, that old song Lollipop was it.)

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I first saw something about hostess ads.

    Very interesting! I don't recall any local Hostess ads. O'course that doesn't mean they weren't produced locally...jus' that my long term memory might be failing me! I'd love to see them. Any chance you can post 'em to a web site?

    Kalihiboy...please explain the 'local hostess' ads. Is that the name of the product? It doesn't ring any bells with me.

    I just reviewed my Galactica 1980 beta tape from 26 years ago taped off of KITV from 1980, here are the commercials/promo's:

    Kung Fu rerun weekday afternoons
    Barney Miller promo
    Newscenter 4 Closeup Story: "Down & Out, the Story of Hawaii's Streetpeople"
    hosted by Emme
    Muffler Bay at Tire Warehouse
    Burger King with a ticker revealing all of the local winners of a recent contest they had
    Spa Health and Fitness Centers...for an introductory offer of $9.99 for one month will get you group activies like disco dancing for your health
    Local Hostess ad with with a plug for Loves Bakery within it, ad takes place with a mom and her kids at a house.
    Charlie's Angels ID tag
    Laverne & Shirley promo
    Soap promo Monday at 9:00pm
    Three's Company rerun Thursday at 6:30pm
    Newscenter 4 Update (I dont know who the old guy was that did this update)
    Kramer's Clothing ad narrated by Michael W. Perry
    A different local Hostess ad, this time with a teenage outrigger canoe club
    with their lead adult speaking
    Meadow Gold...."A Household word in Hawaii"
    Family promo ID tag

    So nothing much of great interest on the tapes but its one of many I have to go thru now. On another tape I saw a CBS Newsbreak from 1980 and they said due to the garbage workers strike all schools are canceled for the time being.

    I don't know if these 8 spots will become favorites -- as they've not even hit the air yet ...

    ... but I was stoked to be able to write about high school kids -- and not just the usual priviledged ones -- getting this ad-creating opportunity.

    http://starbulletin.com/2006/04/11/b...s/story01.html

    I'm looking forward to seeing them.

    About that Lost themed KFC ad. I arrived home kind of late tonight around 7:40 pm, turned on the TV, tune in to KITV and started to get my dinner ready. I saw the commerical thinking it was a Lost episode, the girl playing Shannon was dead on (pardon the pun), the Hurley character was okay up until the knife hit the tree next to his head, then I knew something was up.
    A late follow-up to this thread and the KFC "LOST" ad. I noticed someone uploaded it -- with full clearances and permissions I'm sure (cough cough) -- to YouTube. So, if you haven't seen it (or aren't in Hawaii and couldn't have), you can see it online... or at least a grainy, blurry, Flash-compressed facimile.

    For those who look, one company's ads are actually available online. I should search to see if any other local ads - Pele finalists or not - are online as well.
    Ah jeez...didya really think I could resist effortlessly clicking a button to satisfy my curiosity? Must admit I'm happy about many of them and, as usual, scratching my head over others! Regardless, one of my 2 all time favorite casting projects made the list.

    I'm not privvy to what's negotiated (or not negotiated, as the case may be!) in the <10k category because those jobs are usually cast in house. But the >10k categories usually have a talent rate breakdown that includes a separate payment for web use. I'll be interested to know if you find any others online!

    Ok, I give. What's a marketing fanboy?!

    I also have old newscasts with Bob Sevey, Les Keiter and Joe Moore!

    If someone appeared only once I doubt they ever joined SAG. However, they are on record forever with the SAG office via a Taft-Hartley.

    Finding talent, even a year after they shot a commercial when they're due another payment, is a problem. SAG, talent agents and non-union companies have stacks of checks that have been returned because people don't think to inform the union or their agents about a change of address. Many people lose their SAG memberships because of this; they never receive the bill for their dues, don't think to pay it and end up terminated. With SAG jobs I'm pretty sure you'd at least need to make contact with the office to find out what the process is for what you want to do. But first, if I were in your shoes, I think I'd try to find out if there is, in fact, a statute of limitations or, what Kimo mentioned, a public domain situation. I wish I had some details for you but I don't.

    And, just for the record and for the sake of this discussion, I'm talking principals, not extras!

    After I replied above I briefly wondered about a statute of limitations or a public domain situation. Then work interrupted my curiosity! Researching that kind of info would fall under "homework" for Kalihiboy.
