That might be. I also remember a sort of off-the-wall commercial for some
canned spaghetti and meatballs the plot of which was that the  "star" is
an actor playing an Italian guy  making a commerical for spaghetti
and trying, unsuccessfully to say the phrase "At'sa spicy meatball". When
he finally does say it correctly, some other prop like the stove in the
background falls apart. Late 1960s early 1970s?
