As the son of an IHOP owner (now retired) and a former PT employee, too, I now see why corporate planning was light years behind companies like…say…MCDONALD’S! Check out this campy (disturbing?) commercial from 1969. I remember the blue roof, sign, and waitress uniforms. I always loved the food. But who got Alvin (or was it Simon or Theodore) to sing this ridiculous song?
In honor of his 83rd birthday here is his official music video to Bohemian Rhapsody.
Even though it’s almost 10 minutes, this inspirational and humorous video is worth watching more than just about any TV show on today.
