Hi, Guy!: Cruising in a 1970s TV Commercial
The other occupant (Chuck McCann) opens his side of medicine chest. He's big, brash, leering, apparently high. I remember them both being shirtless, but I guess they weren't.
"Hi, guy!" McCann says, obviously cruising the uncomfortable Fiore, before extolling the wonders of Right Guard (which seems unnecessary, since Fiore already uses it).
"Hi, guy!" became a catchphrase. Everyone at Denkmann Elementary School tried to match Chuck McCann's intonation and leer, without realizing that we were imitating a gay pick-up line.
As this photo suggests, he had quite a nice physique.
No indication that he was gay, or intended a gay reading to his leering "Hi, guy!"
But it's impossible to say without an innuendo. Try it.
