Frank Zappa vs. Your Cough

The commercials we’ve posted previously involving celebrities pitching for various and sundry products have had a long history of wackiness: whether it’s the relatively normal wacky of, say, a Bert Lahr, or the Dali-level wacky of…well, Dali. But there’s just something special about Frank Zappa making a bunch of noise and shilling for cough drops.

Although…does this commercial and its relentless mammoth cough drop box that Cannot Be Stopped make anybody else feel sorry for the cough?

And of course, this gives me an excuse to post a live performance of Zappa conducting “Bolero.” So bonus.
