I like this one too.  I don't recall my Dad making the grunting noise when sitting down into a chair, but I'll admit I do.

maybe not . . . his Dr Pepper was earlier . . . "drink dr pepper, the joy of every boy and girl, it's the most original soft drink ever in the whole wide world."

Edit - actually, going down this rabbit hole, Manilow performed the most original soft drink commercial, but the song was written by Randy Newman and Jake Holmes.

I think I'll stick with the tried-and-true 10, 2 and 4.

So I really went down the rabbit hole. The guy in that commercial was the pitchman for 4 years until he was let go for appearing Naked in “American Werewolf in London”

If you want a baseball connection, here is one with Ron Guidry.
