How frightening is this?

I've been looking for this for years. Finally, no less than Russell Oliver himself posted it on his YouTube page. You know, the guy in Toronto with the cheesy commercials offering cash for used and unwanted jewelry.

It was late August 1997. He demonstrates a "purchase" of bling-bling from an actress playing Princess Diana. I saw it late on a Saturday night -- just hours later Diana was dead.

I know, this is really morbid ... but I have to admit, before we all learned the terrible news, I got a huge laugh out of this.

My father went there once. He didn't sell a ring he had -- although Oliver's assistant actually offered a lot more than I thought would be offered.
