I was watching television this morning and I saw what I thought was a familiar face pitching a local Ford dealer:
The voice was unmistakable and the getup seemed to evoke a character from Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles. I did a little research and, sure enough, it is the same Burton Gilliam who played “Lyle” in Saddles.

I guess old cowboys don’t fade away, they sell Fords.
