You're referring to the US TV spots for "Gulf No Knocks" (or No-Knox - saw it spelled both ways) via Google. Can't seem to find any online footage, but I remember the campaign well. People scooting around town on their rears - whole families passing each other on streets, etc. As kids, we would imitatate the commercials by scooting around in the yard.

Yep, I'm confused, and in this case google didn't help. The first thing that popped up when I was trying to sort through early 70's memories was "Gulf Western Oil," an Australian oil company. I guess I figured that then, as now, no two large companies could share a significant portion of their name without one suing the other into submission.

JLo, you'd do all a service, I suppose, if there were some way to get those ads into some digital form.

kevkev, are both guys racing around on their asses? That sounds familiar but not necessarily a Gulf commerical. Maybe Gulf swiped the idea from them. It'd be easy enough to sort through Oscar winning animation to figure it out. Thanks.

I've got a video cassette of vintage automotive adverts, which includes one of said Gulf ads. If you are interested in seeing it.

Chuck's right, Gulf+Western was a media and manufacturing conglomerate seperate from Gulf Oil. But this shouldn't affect your search too much other than the word 'western.' good luck!

Turner Classic Movie Plays a Stop Motion short every once in a while.
It's about a Nerdy Guy Who Races a Cigar Smoking guy.
They said it won an Acadamey Award.
TCM might have a listing for it.
do a few searches and you might find it.

Gulf+Western has never had anything to do with with Gulf Oil Company. You're confused.
