John Barry in 1980s Japanese TV commercial - Youtube
An intriguing 1980s Japanese TV commercial has appeared on Youtube featuring John Barry and Kirk Douglas with a taste for Maxim coffee.
Barry music collector James Culbertson, who lives in Japan, comments in the Yahoo John Barry group: "Lots of American/European stars did commercials in Japan. The salary for one commercial was unbelievably high. ... The begining of the Barry commercial the narrator says "Lake Tahoe".....the rest is just about the coffee. Towards the early 80's the Japanese started sending out film crews (which was cheaper) to various countries to get stars in commercials."
