1969 IHOP Commercial

IHOP-1969-commercial

This commercial for IHOP from 1969 nails the period down: Psychedelic synthesizers, a family with balloons (a lot of balloons) running in a field, a high-pitched Alvin voice singing the jingle... What did they do with their balloons while they ate? Where can one find such a glorious chicken dish? What was served inside that chicken dish? So many questions.
