R.I.P. Ricardo Montalban

Sadly, Ricardo Montalban passed away Wednesday. He was 88. Best known for his work as Fantasy Island's Mr. Roarke and a pot-bellied Kirk's nemesis Khan, G:TB today chooses to remember Ricardo Montalban for his star turn in this 1975 Chrysler Cordoba commercial.

Rest in peace Vincent Ludwig.

I wll never think of soft Corinthian leather the same again.

I will always love Ricardo, even though he tried to kill the Queen of England. God bless Frank Drebin.

I'm still laughing at the visual of rob propping up Hervé Villechaize, "Weekend at Bernies"-style, and having Hervé pour one out for Ricardo.

That is indeed a funny visual because it would be hard for Rob to hold up a guy taller than him.
