WKRP In Cincinnati – Turkeys Away – Thanksgiving Promotion

Friday, November 24th, 2006

Turkeys Away is a classic episode from the 1970s sitcom WKRP In Cincinnati. From the Wikipedia entry:

Feeling marginalized at WKRP, Mr. Carlson announces a special, top-secret
Thanksgiving day promotion of his design. The promotion is a free turkey
giveaway at a local supermarket. From a hovering helicopter, Mr. Carlson drops
20 live turkeys, as Les reports the ensuing tragedy in a live remote broadcast
(a parody of Herbert Morrison‘s live reporting of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster). "The turkeys are hitting the pavement like bags of wet cement!"
