"Big Cadillac Giveaway" 1983 Commercial w/ Neil Young
Neil Young in the "Big Cadillac Giveaway" 1983 MTV commercial.
MTV teamed up with "your local record store" and Neil Young to give away a pink Cadillac. Neil's performance is supremely entertaining, too.
And this comment from the announcer, Dan Clear himself:
I am Dan Clear in the commercial.
What a blast working with Neil and his crew. The driving force of the backstage hijinks was L.A. Johnson who recently passed away. Larry was Neil's creative force for many years, his Son and Daughter still work with Neil and continue L.A.'s legacy.
Any admiration for Neil is well placed... he is the real deal.
It was the hardest and most fun project in my 40 years as a performer.
Guess there was a reason Neil's band was called the Shocking Pinks...
