In the early 1970's, an American margarine company convinced a fancy French restaurant to prepare two identical dishes, one made with their margarine and the other made with real butter, and offer both dishes to their customers for comparison. Cameras recorded the customers sampling the dishes and saying, "No difference"; these were shown in American commercials for the margarine. This is the inspiration for the blindfolded French chef who appears repeatedly in the film, saying "NO DEE-FRAWNCE!" in a thick and phony French accent. See more »

This one is definitely a product of the 1970's with it's post- Watergate and Viet Nam cynicism. Perhaps it's a bit dated, but does a great job capturing the smarmy quality of TV commercials of the era, especially because it uses some of the best voice over talent of the time (Ernie Anderson, Danny Dark, etc.). Look for pre-fame bit parts by John Candy, Chevy Chase, Ron Silver, and director Betty Thomas.
