In this humorous television commercial for FMC Corporation’s Furadan, an insecticide, a peanut farmer shows off the magical benefits of the product. Furadan was the market name for the insecticide carbofuran. In 2008, the United States Environmental Protection Agency implemented bans against carbofuran due to the risks associated with its usage. Bert Rodriguez’s Dallas-based production company, Visual Presentations, produced the commercials. Rodriguez was also the producer of the Clio-Award-winning Old Home Bread commercials that introduced the world to C. W. McCall.
