This is one of the weirdest and most confusing things I’ve stumbled upon in a long time. The author of Fahrenheit 451, the Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked This Way Comes, etc. is in a commercial for prunes. Apparently it is from the 60s, which would explain a lot.
Do they even have commercials for prunes anymore? And if so, why aren’t more high profile science fiction authors in them? This must be changed.
I wonder if this commercial is what inspired Rachel Bloom to write this song.
