P: Alka-Seltzer
E: I heard it through the Grape Vine
C: Um, eat too much rasins and you need Alka-Seltzer?

You get wine from grapes, a hangover from wine, and hangover relief from Alka-Seltzer and hair of the dog!

The identifications are indeed correct. Not the Connection we're looking for here at PCQOTD.

What introduced millions of people to the song "I Heard It Through The Grapevine"?

Jeff said...

I can't figure out the connection between the California Raisins and the Alka-Seltzer commercial, other than they came from the '70s and became culturally embedded in the '80s.

Actually, the Alka-Seltzer campaign began in 1963. The "Heard It Through The Grapevine" raisin campaign started in 1987.

The California Raisins are an important part of the Connection.

Connection: Television commercials that used stop-motion animation.
