Yes, but everyone who has lived in Cincinnati knows exactly who Kash Amburgy from South Lebanon, OH is. Twenty-five years and I can still remember the ad ... and not many others.

Very true! It does have a tendency to stick with ya over the years...much like those obnoxious ads that were done by the now deceased Billy Mayes!

Awwwww! Poor ole Kash! He was a bit of a Cincinnati icon in his own way I suppose.

Do they still have those commercials with the Kwick Brothers for King Kwick stores? It's been so long since I've been there I'm not even sure of the spelling of King Kwick anymore.

Ahhhhhh...but I miss the Cincinnati chili...and United Dairy Farmers ice cream! YUM!!!

I still remember when old Coney was THE amusement park before Kings Island. Ahhhhhhhh...the childhood memories!

I'm pretty sure the Kwik Brothers were not actual twins but were just one guy superimposed beside himself. I haven't thought of the Kwik Brothers in 30 years. One of my favorite Cincy memories is the Cool Ghoul (was it Dick von Hoene?) reading the afternoon news report on Channel 19. He wasn't in character, and I guess was just reading from the wire service. But the voice was unmistakable: "Fighting broke out in the Middle East today," and so forth. Cracked me up every time.

There was, in fact, a single person who was the Kwik Brothers. The wonders of split-screen filming! That chain of stores is long gone - most of them were bought out by Circle K (the common "K" was probably, um, koincidental.) Did anybody here besides me ever work at one? If you were sharp-eyed and could see the parking area, you knew to be on the lookout if an AMC Pacer (the "fleet" in use as of 1978) with a license plate ending in "KK" rolled up. That meant an undercover inspection team was arriving to see how you were doing your job. Woe betide anybody who scored under 90 on their checklist! (Stock neatly arranged on shelves, cooler filled, "suggestive selling" - LOL - to customer i.e. "You're all set for milk, how 'bout picking up some cookies to go with it?", etc etc.)
Speaking of commercials from back in the day, what car dealer's pitchman wore out the phrase "Nobody but nobody...NOOOOOOOBODY" to describe the business's low prices? Am drawing a total blank on that one.
