Ford Meets Blazing Saddles?

I was watching television this morning and I saw what I thought was a familiar face pitching a local Ford dealer:

The voice was unmistakable and the getup seemed to evoke a character from Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. I did a little research and, sure enough, it is the same Burton Gilliam who played "Lyle" in Saddles. 
"A song...a real song..." Burton Gilliam as Lyle (center).
I guess old cowboys don't fade away, they sell Fords.


  1. Burton Gilliam lives fairly close to where I am. He's done some voiceover work with a friend of mine. My friend said he's as nice as he is funny.

  2. Clay, that is wonderful to hear. Thanks for posting.
