This was a typical a beer commercial that Clarence Coyote had seen air on TV in 1960.
I'm sure the two bears in pics 1, 3 and 5 look familiar.

Pic #1. This is the commercial as it aired.

Pic #2. Oldest cub Jed complains about waiting for a commercial before Captain Kangaroo comes on, Daddy Al assures Jed that TV stations wouldn't have the money to stay on the air if they didn't have sponsors paying to run ads.

The rest of the pics are for viewing with no soundtrack.

Below is a link to the actual commercial that aired 60+ years ago.

Carling's was bought out in the late 1960s and is no longer around.

Interesting how they alter the time signature between 4/4 and 6/8. That's very unusual for a commercial.

I didn't notice that.

After listening to the commercial again, I did notice at footage 22 on my pic #1, and footage 27 on the Youtube video, that the music does change.
I didn't catch what you meant by time signature at first. I was looking for small numbers on the screen that indicate how many seconds of air time had gone by.

Using your recording of it as reference:

0:00 - 0:05 : 4/4 time. You can count 1,2,3,4 with each measure.
0:05 - 0:19 : 6/8 time. Typified by two groups of 3: 123 456 very quick.
0:19 - 0:25 : 4/4 time. Very jarring, as it happens in mid verse. "And a whistle for Black Label"

The music at the end is all 4/4

Now that you mentioned it, I do notice the music between 5 seconds and 19 seconds has a beat reminiscent of a bouncing rubber ball.

Exactly! That is the 6/8 feel.

It's the first time I've ever heard of Carling's Beer.  The only beer brands I remember were Lone Star, Pearl, Hamm's, Coors, Budweiser, and Busch.

And speaking of old commercials, I remember Clarence ordering Mountain Dew at The Hop when I saw this classic ad: http://youtu.be/dyu4Tpoq8hc

There is also Schlitz, Blatz, Shaffer, Falstaff and Rolling Rock.
Blatz is no longer around. I don't think Shaffer and Falstaff are around these days either.

In fact, in the next part of by story, Biff Richie and Gaston, and their girl friends buy a case of 3.2 % Rolling Rock in Colorado...That's where they were planning to steal a car from out of state.
Colorado was one of the states where an 18 year old can buy 3.2% beer.
