RIP Howard Zieff

It's the rare 1 minute TV ad that's truly memorable almost 40 years later. Howard Zieff starred -- yes, starred -- in the Alka-Selzter "Spicy Meatball" commercial, which is right up there with the Mean Joe Green Coke spot, as far as I'm concerned.

After this, he went on to direct movies, including Private Benjamin. I got more enjoyment from Mr. Zieff than I ever knew.
