I was in the hockey commercial for Paramount Potato chips. I have been trying to locate any copy of our commercial for 20 years. The commercial aired in the 70's.
I sopke with the goalie Steve H. and he doesn't have one. Of course Paramount has been out of business for a while. But I still remember singing that song out on the ice. Still live in GB.....Troy S

Oh, but there was more to the Paramount song--one of the few jingles from childhood that I can remember:
I'm Slim Chiply the guy you see on the Paramount Potato Chips bright red pack. I'm the flavor deputy, protecting cripsness in every sack. So delicious; so nutritious; yesiree they're pips! Paramount Potato Chips!
Grew up outside of Lansing, Michigan!
One for Paramount Potato Chips I saw some 20 years ago was *so* bizarre I never forgot it - the first part was simply cheap 16mm footage of some kids playing ball with some cheerful martial music soundtrack straight out of an old Japanese monster movie - then there's an abrupt cut to a stiff figurine of an anthropomorphized potato chip in Western gear being shuffled across a screen with some jolly singing cowboy soundtrack, presumably the chip singing although his mouth isn't moving.
Paramount? Home of Slim Chipply?
Do you remember the first ad they had with kids in it? They were playing hockey. My best friend Lorne was in that one. He lived next door to a Paramount exec. I thought it was so cool, then when they filmed the second one, the ones were you see them playing ball? Rememeber the fat kid near the bottom of the screen? That was me.
Anyway, the song went like this:
I'm Slim Chipply, the guy you see on the Paramount potato chip bright red packages. They're delious, and so nutrious, yes sir-ree they're pips! Paramount Potato chips.
Dang! Small world, isn't it?
Well, Slim is the Flavor Deputy, I've heard.
