It was this week in 1986, that Ringo Starr became the first member of The Beatles to be part of a TV commercial campaign. The product was Sun Country Classic Wine Coolers, that to the best of my knowledge is no longer around. On the other hand Ringo is very much alive and still doing commercials, his latest is for Skechers shoes.

Here's Ringo pushing wine coolers.
