We got a collective extension, but it's still Tax Day

 So why not watch two of the greats help us out?

Do you think the IRS had any trouble getting stations to run its PSAs? I doubt it! 

Looking at this 1977 spot with modern eyes, you can't help but lament the fact that two of the most innuendo-spouting performers of the era recorded a "clean" public service announcement. There's not even one suggestive comment about Rue helping Norman "get an extension." She says nothing when he uses the phrase "tax package." Sure, Fell's character makes a mild alimony joke, but it's rather tame. What a missed opportunity!
