Stuck in my brain. Need help to identify.
I have a candy bar commercial from the 60s stuck in my head, which is no big deal, but I can't remember what candy bar it was for. Any childs of the 60s out there, for whom this rings a bell?
Scene: A tiny weather-station-type cabin in the middle of the frozen waste. A guy (GUY) sits at a table. The door bursts open, with snow blowing in, and a dude (DUDE) wearing a parka bustles in, carrying two cardboard boxes.
DUDE: We got some mail! We got some mail!
Each of them enthusiastically tears open a box.
GUY: What'd you get?
DUDE: (slowly extracting his hands from a box) I think it was a lemon meringue pie. What'd you get?
GUY: A box of [insert name of candy bar here].
Dude: (his eyes growing wide) Hey! I'll trade you! (He begins to rummage around his tiny space for items to trade. All the while GUY slowly chews on a [insert name of candy bar here].) My after-shave lotion! Jungle Beast!
ANNOUNCER voice-over about the delicious candy bar.
DUDE: (dejectedly) My walrus-jaw book-ends?
Does anyone remember this ad? It wouldn't bug me if I could just remember what candy bar it was. A coworker said "Wunderbar," but I don't think that's it. I think it predates the Wunderbar. Their commercial had vikings, if I recall correctly. All help appreciated.
