Influence of Jack Benny Show on Advertising Career

I happened to be reading the NY Times, and came across an obituary for Joy Golden, and ad executive and award-winning radio ad producer. One line caught my attention – “Ms. Golden, who had never worked in radio but grew up listening to “The Jack Benny Program,” instinctively opted for humor.” That’s the only Jack Benny reference, but if you want to read the obit (and listen to three of her commercials), here it is:

Nice to hear how the Benny ads influenced a career.

The first two were pretty good. The commercial for "La Cage" didn't really make any sense to me though.
