Imperial is a brand of margarine distributed by Unilever. It is known or best remembered for early commercials in which a person who recently ate something with the margarine would have a crown appear on their head (accompanied by a four note fanfare). The commercial has inspired sporadic cultural references throughout the years. The commercial was spoofed in episodes of The Carol Burnett Show, Green Acres and Parker Lewis Can't Lose. On a 1982 episode of Georgia Championship Wrestling aired on WTBS, wrestler 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper gave an interview wherein he mentioned Imperial Margarine by name in the course of mocking his opponent, Jerry 'The King' Lawler.
