Firestone and city snow


Firestone tire commercial for Town and Country winter treads. The advertisement shows a city snow scene and cars on a poorly plowed main street. A male voice-over sells tires with ice grip studs (shown in animation) and then states the company motto: “They grip and guaranteed to go through ice, mud and snow, or we’ll pay the tow.” He also states purchase of tires comes with a “free plastic ice scraper” and to check the yellow pages for the nearest dealer.
