A succinct, informative commercial, this message from the Empire man presented all the facts and benefits of Empire Carpet. Unlike competitors, Empire didn’t need to rely on loud music and craziness. Staid and respectful of the viewing audience’s intelligence, the Empire man simply stated the facts. It’s easy: quality carpeting with free padding delivered and installed the next day. In addition, no interest, finance charges or installment payments until the following year. He summed it up in one great ending: Carpet next day, payment next year. Simple and honest, that’s the way it’s always been with Empire. A great ’80s commercial, a great company.
