Here's a screen shot from a TV show for "I Love Lucy," made as a promotion for the show. And Westinghouse, of course...

Don't think I remember seeing this one before, but I do remember that Westinghouse was one of their sponsors. Looking at this pic I can imagine Desi saying, "Loozee, you got some splainin' to do! Now tell the people out there about all these fine Westin-gouse appliances!"
I do remember seeing a video for another commercial they were in with Fred and Ethel (William Frawley and Vivian Vance) and Westinghouse spokeswoman and cookbook writer Betty Furness where they were promoting a national sale that Westinghouse was having. Always got a laugh out of the way Desi said "Westin-gouse!"

The dryer in Charles Lester's photo is HUGE! That thing literally looks like it's as big as a fridge.

Wasn't Lucy also promoting Hoover vacuums as well. Seems that I have seen Lucy with one of the Hoover cylnder vacuums of the day in advertisements?
