For those who remember Raquel Welch as a silver-screen seductress, here's a sad development, my dear friends. The sexpot star of such films as One Million Years B.C. is now apparently a million years old herself, as she's now shilling for Foster Grant ... reading glasses!
FGX International has released the latest TV ad campaign for Foster Grant, and it features Welch reaching out to the elderly and anyone else whose vision could use some extra magnification. The ads began airing on national network cable on Monday, and the message from the triple-threat entertainer is two-fold: Over-the-counter reading glasses can aid in near-vision tasks, and Foster Grant offers hundreds of fashionable styles at affordable prices.
Naturally, the ad incorporates the eyewear brand's famous tagline: "Isn't that Raquel Welch behind those Foster Grants?" (BTW, we think she still smokin' hot at age 68.)
