Baby Boomer Alert: Who Remembers Clara Peller’s “Where’s The Beef?”
On this day, January 10, 1984 an unknown 82-year old beginning actress named Clara Peller starred in her first Wendy's hamburger commercial. Hollering "Where's the beef?" into the camera, this white-haired, crinkly-eyed grandmother soon became a Pop icon.
Peller made millions for Dave Thomas' hamburger chain and made herself a household name. Or at least a household face. She died just three years after debuting her now famous three-word tag line. When she passed, Peller was 85.
How many remember seeing this commercial for the first time back in 1984?
