Toonfomercial: The Hill family shills for Autolite (2003)

The success of King of the Hill gave Mike Judge something he'd never get with Beavis & Butt-Head. That is to say, a commercial endorsement deal.

In 2003, Judge and 20th Century Fox contracted with Honeywell, the parent company of Autolite spark plugs, for a series of ads featuring Hank (Judge) and Bobby (Pamela Adlon). In this ad, they're joined by Hank's dad, Cotton, and NASCAR star Darrell Waltrip, who would later retire from the track to become a racing analyst for Fox.
