It’s unfortunate that the clip has been removed from YouTube, and I can’t find it elsewhere online, but many people will remember that, during a 1980-something live TV commercial for Alpo dog food on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” Ed McMahon (Johnny’s announcer & sidekick), cued a dog to eat the food in a bowl, and watched that beast, along with twenty million viewers at home, just sit there starring balefully at the bowl. So what could Johhny do, but to run over, get down on all fours, and start eating the dog food himself. Can’t afford to lose a sponsor! Amen.
