Follies of the Madmen #407

"Murray Westgate portrays an Esso service station dealer who asks a woman driver if she wants Esso Extra gasoline, but she only wants her windows cleaned."

Not sure if Murray peeved attitude conveys the right message. Also, perhaps a bit too much thrilling window-scrubbing action?

Sounds as if ESSO was ahead of the times for a gasoline additive. There might have been ethanol used to prevent the icing and freezing in the fuel system during the winter season. And this must have been broadcast in the midwest / eastern regions of the U.S. I can't recall seeing it on the Left Coast where I grew up.

Q: What do you call a driver who cuts through a gas station to avoid a red light?
A: An ESSO A**hole.

I love the "crap, the lady didn't tip me" look from Murray after the woman goes away.

You get the sense she’d like him to be rubbing something other than her windows...

That rotating Esso sign is way cool.
