Yesterday it was reported that the Grand Prospect Hall in Park Slope is attempting to expand with a luxury hotel, but all people really want to know about is that commercial. The quirky television spot airs 20 times a day on local networks, the Daily News reports, and owner Michael Halkias believes that 98% of the city is familiar with it... making Grand Prospect Hall the Dr. Zizmor of banquet halls! Halkias says he made the commercial for free, "so if anybody wants to laugh at the homemade aspect of it... I am laughing all the way to the bank." Paging Andre Balazs, we got a new idea for marketing the Hotel Chelsea!

The 2009 ad that runs now wasn't the first, either. Below check out their 1986 commercial as well:
