We are saddened by the passing of Oscar®-winning actor Jack Palance, and he even has a brief comics-ish kind of connection by having hosted RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT back in the day.

But while ya’ll find Youtube to be a source of wonders, it just frustrates us. We have dim memories of Palance starring in a commercial for — we believe — some kind of chunky soup where he talked about his satisfaction with finally finding a sodium-laden canned soup that included “vegetables I can identify.” However, we could find only this Prestone Anti-freeze commercial on Youtube.

Did we misremember the indentifiable vegetables spot? Did it ever exist? Help us not be crazy. Please.


  1. Never mind the soup. According to the filmography I was just looking at he was in a film of Outlaw Of Gor. They made a film of these soft porn barbarian fantasies and no one told me? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH
