Subject: "Fences" - Radio or TV jingle

Really loved the movie "Fences," with the Pittsburgh scenes and references. August Wilsonreally knew his home town and sprinkled wonderful little details throughout the script.

At one point, Troy (Denzel Washington) is talking about buying furniture, and mentions that there's a store selling three rooms of furniture for $398, and said there's a jingle about it on the radio.

Immediately, I recalled the jingle, "Three Rooms, Three-Ninety-Eight, Three Rooms, Three-Ninety-Eight..." I think it was maybe a ten or fifteen second spot that ran with the station ID on KDKA-TV, with some very primitive animation. Was it Olson's Furniture? Does anyone remember anything else about this spot?

BTW: Viola Davis gave a performance for the ages in "Fences."
