When I was a kid there was a series of "Dirty Jokes" going around based on the scenario of "the Traveling Salesman and the Farmer's Daughter." Those jokes were the basis of my idea for this Hai Karate commericial.
The salesman was played by Duncan Hoxworth, a really funny actor who Tom and I subsequently used in some other spots. The Farmer's Daughter was played by Jade Hagen.
The voice over is Gene Shepherd, the radio storyteller we used to hear late nights on WOR radio in the fifties. He was an idol of mine.
