This 1970s television commercial for Conoco advertises a holiday promotion at participating Conoco gas stations. Every time motorists fill up with Conoco gasoline, they receive a free roll of wrapping paper. To show off the product, the commercial depicts a young boy attempting to wrap a puppy. This footage came to TAMI as part of the Patrick S. Coakley Jr. Collection. Coakley was a producer with KHOU-TV.
