James Brown album TV commercial from the 1970s

Video

My first introduction to the music of James Brown came from this 1978 TV commercial for a Brown “best-of” album. While I remember being impressed with how “hard” this music sounded, I think what I most remember about this ad was the cartoon scene of two female butts in short shorts doing the bump while Brown shrieked “Hot Pants!!!!” over and over again.  There are some other interesting “special effects” in this spot as well.  This is 1970s advertising cheese at its finest.
