    hey can anyone link me to a website that has this commercial in its entirety, or some kind of clips or information on it? it's the one where the indian is standing on the road and the can(i think) rolls up to his shoe and he picks it up and a tear streams down his cheek. thanks.

    I wish they'd show those on a reg'lar basis again. I was always moved by them. I knew the guys name at one point, but forget it now. Good luck.

    The crying Indian's name was Iron Eyes Cody. He was an actor in dozens of films from 1919 to 1991 but he was most famous for the tear he shed in pollution PSAs that first aired on Earth Day 1971. He passed away two years ago.

    Dammmmmnnn... I thought he had passed away a long time ago - and he was working up 'til '91?? Wow. I knew I'd seen him in film, but not that recently.
