In this 1960s television commercial for Martha White self-rising corn meal mix, Flatt & Scruggs with the Foggy Mountain Boys perform an upbeat bluegrass song promoting the product. Bert Rodriguez’s Dallas-based production company, Visual Presentations, produced the commercial. Rodriguez was also the producer of the Clio-Award-winning Old Home Bread commercials that introduced the world to C. W. McCall.
