Transcript of Big League Chew commercial, circa 1991: "Hey, kids. Do you like to blow? Do you like to pop? I'm little-known Major League Baseball player Jeff Kunkel and I sure do, and I know you do, too. (Cut to shot of Kunkel blowing a huge bubble.) So get those mouths a-blowing and and make it pop with Big League Chew, now with a salty aftertaste that the big leaguers — and their wives — can't get enough of. (Kunkel's bubble pops.) You've had regular bubble gum. Borrrinnnggg. Grab some Big League Chew. Your parents' bubble gum is soft and small. The new Big League Chew is long and rigid, and just calls out for you to stuff it in your mouth. (Cut to shot of Kunkel slowly inserting clump of gum strips into his mouth and rubbing it all over his lips.) So start chewing the gum that's bursting with flavor, the gum that the big leaguers love. Blow some Chew, and make it pop."
