Who was Mason Reese?

Born in 1966, the red-haired, round-faced Mason Reese was perhaps the most widely seen child in TV commercials in the early 1970s.

He started making commercials in 1970, and won three Clios. He advertised, among other products, Oscar Mayer bologna.

He was also a favorite guest on “The Mike Douglas Show” (synd., 1963-82).
