This button references a 1972 Alka-Seltzer commercial in which "Ralph" moans "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" while his wife teases him and then advises him to take some Alka-Seltzer. The 30 second commercial was an immediate hit and received CLIO Hall of Fame recognition. It was remade in 2005 with Frank and Marie Barone (Peter Boyle and Doris Roberts), the lovable couple from "Everyone Loves Raymond." Both ads manage to promote the product in a memorable way, while being highly entertaining. Alka-Seltzer is an effervescent antacid and pain reliever which was first sold in 1931.
