I found two things amazing in that video. First, how many people were chewing gum. Wow. Second, nobody was singing along. Heck I was singing along while I was watching it.

I’m 62.  I remember him for having gotten “into an auto accident” to the point where he needed a plate in his head.  He was actually beaten up by a policeman.  After a few surgeries, he showed up to perform on the Glen Campbell Show (which was a summer replacement for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour) around 1968 or so.  Anyway, he didn’t perform much after that.

I wondered about that,  too.  Then I read the description on YouTube and that was from the Beechnut Hour *(something like that) television show.  Since it was sponsored by a chewing gum company it makes sense that the audience would be chewing gum.

 

*Saturday Night Beechnut Show, May 1958.
