Produced and shown in 1984, this charming video starts out with the Empire Man resting comfortably on an upper shelf in the warehouse. He is with a couple of sample Bissell carpet sweepers. He announces that he’s been telling the viewers about Empire Carpets for five years. By that time, he surmises, viewers should be well aware of Empire’s guaranteed delivery and installation in 72 hours, the availability of quality brands, the great credit plan and the free gifts. In the end, he even sings the telephone number. It’s a classic, lighthearted commercial and a subtle reminder of Empire’s longevity.
