In this television commercial for Twin Twirler yo-yos, young boys perform tricks with the toy and show off its dual purpose as a top. 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.
