If you follow this link and start watching at 3:30 (3 minutes 30 seconds). You can see what great service the Three Stooges provided to petroleum customers.
The actor driving the car is Emil Sitka. He was in many Three Stooges films.
As a teenager in high school I would write letters to him and he would reply to my questions about working with the Three Stooges.

I know now where my guys at work got their training. They must have worked at ONION Oil in high school.

Emil Sitka, did a LOT, with the "Stooges". Much of it, without the recognition deserved. Only a REAL Stooge Fan, would even know, Who and What, he really is...

I still keep in touch with Emil's son Saxon Sitka who lives in California. He has all of the letters fans wrote his father, including mine from 25 years ago.
I am a real Stooge fan and have been collecting 1930's - 60's movie posters and memorabilia since 1988. I have also helped with information on a 3 Stooges book.
Here is one of the autographed photos Emil sent me in the late 80's.
