Hello, Detroit expatriots:
Faygo used to make a drink called Uptown (somewhat like 7-Up or Sprite). Apparently it has been discontinued. In the 50s, they ran TV commercials in Detroit featuring Herkimer Bottleneck, the bottle blower. Herkimer lost his energy for blowing bubbles and was about to be fired (“Blow, or go!”) when he drank some Uptown and got his energy back (thanks to the sugar rush). I’ve been looking for this commercial on You Tube and other video sites but I’ve never found it (The Faygo Kid for Faygo Old Fashioned Root Beer is available). Does anyone know where the Uptown commercial can be found online?
