Grey Poupon - Pardon Me
Summary: One man in a Rolls-Royce asks a man in another Rolls-Royce if he has any Grey Poupon.
A man is being chauffeured down a country road in his Rolls-Royce. The limo driver then opens the glove compartment to pass a bottle of Grey Poupon to the man who is eating a full meal in the back seat. Another Rolls-Royce approaches and the passenger in the back of that one rolls down the window and asks: "Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?" The spot ends with the text: IT EVEN HAS WINE.

When Larry and I completed the storyboard, we knew we had nailed it, we just didn't know how much. When we were shooting the double Rolls pull up scene, the director Harold Becker turned to me and said "this is a #*$%* classic".
Filmed and aired in Fall, 1981.
