This particular commercial break aired on Saturday, June 7th, 1969 during an episode of The Jackie Gleason Show (7:30-8:30PM ET). Included are two commercials.
Here’s a transcript:
[6-12 Insect Repellent Commercial] “This life guard has volunteered to show you how famous 6-12 Insect Repellent keeps bugs from biting. We spray one side with 6-12, leave the other unprotected. Now, we turn loose these hungry mosquitoes. Watch. The unprotected skin gets bitten again and again. But look. 6-12 keeps mosquitoes from biting. And it lasts for hours. Spray on 6-12 Insect Repellent. It keeps biting bugs from biting you.”
[Pall Mall Gold Cigarettes Commercial] “‘Decisions decisions. Do I want good, rich flavor or one that’s lower in tar than the best-selling filtered king?’ Wait. Now one cigarette gives you both. Pall Mall Gold. Newest U.S. government figures show Pall Mall Gold 100’s lower in tar than the best-selling filtered king. Yes, it’s longer than king-size yet lower in tar than the best-selling filtered king. Longer, yet milder, smoother tasting. Pall Mall Gold. Pall Mall menthol, too.
