In the early 1970s, preparing Chinese food was still considered “exotic” by a good number of Americans, and the gooey canned variety was the only way to go. It’s obvious that Beatrice Foods was trying to make Chinese cooking acceptable in America by hiring Captain Binghamton’s sidekick, Lt. Elroy Carpenter, (Bob Hastings) to dump La Choy on his steak and potatoes meal.
This commercial used to bother me when it was on network TV, and I captured it the same way as “Law Day USA.”
