Heinz Ketchup and My Brother Steve


YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

This retro ad is for my brother Steve.  Steve consumes vast quantities of Heinz ketchup.  Chime in if I'm off base here bro, but I'd guess he can kill a jumbo bottle in a single month.  Maybe two.

Steve has always loved ketchup.  For a while, he was even obsessed with ketchup chips.  If you invite my brother to a BBQ, a single bottle of ketchup likely won't do, so ensure there's a second on stand-by.

This ad for Heinz ketchup aired in 1984.  I still remember that "you're the top" jingle.
