There was a commercial back in the 60's that I believe was a product of the President's Council on Physical Fitness.
It featured a voice over talking about the need to use our bodies and not just our brains. The scene was sometime in the distant future where a faceless robot named "Z 12" (funny how I can remember that but I'm not sure I mailed the mortgage check last week) carries in a glass box containing a live human head. As Z 12 exits, stage right, the head becomes animated as it begins to perform calculations, starting with "The integral of X..." while the voice over continues.
At the end of the commercial, the head announces, "Z 12, I finished now."
Z 12 does not return.
The head becomes more agitated and concerned as it calls for Z 12 who apparently, will never be coming back.
Fade to black.
I wish I could find it.
There was another one where various typical Americans are performing activities involving their wrists such as a man drawing a pool cue back and forth before making his shot, a guy popping peanuts into his mouth while he reclines in front of the TV and so forth.
The voice over, at the end of the message says, "Nobody can say anything bad about our wrists!"
