Bugs Stays at the Holiday Inn

Let's travel back to 1990 again for yet another tie-in with Bugs' 50th birthday. Here's a commercial for the Holiday Inn where Elmer and a goon from a rival hotel are attempting to capture Bugs (since nobody is staying at their hotel since everyone wants to be at Bugs' bash at the Holiday Inn). Note that Elmer is made even less menacing than usual by being armed with a cork gun.

I remember a Looney Toons promotion at the Holiday Inn because I got some Bugs Bunny cards and stuff.

This is the first time that I see this commercial from Holiday Inn in that year. I can imagine seeing the Looney Tunes characters in a Holiday Inn Express commercials on TV right now. Now that will be something to laugh about.

Besides the pop-gun, I liked the fact they were using Fudd's design from "A Wild Hare". Nice touch.

Isn't that John Larroquette as the 'goon'?
