I'm guessing it is an RCA...

CTC-10 or 11. That candy is still on the market. And it's still too good for kids LOL.

That ad looks very (badly) photoshopped.

The TV and decor were ancient by 1977. Montalban was a rich man who drove Cordoba's up to his mountain top estate, where I'd assume he had a nice Space Command Chromacolor II waiting.

Why all the quotes around "adopted", "father", etc? You don't call attention to an adopted child in such a manner.

...and Montalban was married to one woman for 60+ years, also her first marriage.

From the look on Sly's face, I'd say he's had one to many Toffifay candy bars. LOL

I wonder if that set was available in a rich, Corinthian leather wrapped cabinet?

All in all, a really ignorant ad.

Ricardo Montalban's bio lists four children, two female and two male: Laura, Anita, Victor and Mark; and none named Sylvester. If the photo were not labeled "Ricardo and Sylvester Montalban," the family terms in quotes could refer to a child actor that performed with him. Very strange.

Agree. The copy is also weird. "he's never going to get his hands on any Toffifay 'while the old man is still breathing'".

So kill you parents and eat their candy? At least not in 1977.

I also don't think Time magazine was putting their name on every page like that in that era.

I'm calling fake. Weird thing to fake, but fake. What's the source of the ad?

I'm calling fake. Weird thing to fake, but fake. What's the source of the ad?It appears Time magazine September issues in 1977 came out on the 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. There was no September 16, 1977 issue.

I found the ad on a vintage ad community on Facebook.

I didn't see any link either.I went back a couple of times to try to figure out what they were talking about. Maybe it's something that doesn't show up when you have a good internet security?

And the link Diana posted had nothing but off-topic print ads as far as I could tell. Big waste of time. I certainly saw nothing there about roundie TV ads.

I enjoyed the humorous print ads.
So they didn't have any relationship to roundies. Big deal.
They were a lot funnier than the corny ad for the candy bar.

Many roundie threads have pages and pages of replies that bear absolutely no relationship to the original post. Big deal.
