It was broadcast twice: once during the 1984 Super Bowl, and once before that on a local TV station in Twin Falls, Idaho, in the middle of the night. The earlier broadcast was so it would be eligible for 1983 creative awards, without making any publicity.

That was definitely one of the best ads of all time. Thanks for the reminder.
