Odd to see ads that are so straightforwardly about the product they’re advertising. I miss those.

I am totally in favor of a regular “funky old TV commercial” day.

And that ad is insane. Awesomely insane.

Wow, if this is what commercials were like at the time, suddenly the crazy old Bashki version of Lord of the Rings makes a lot more sense… sort of.

Funky old tv commercial day sounds like fun.

The relentless menacing undertone of this advertisement must have given nightmares to a whole generation of young children.

“By the way… How are things in YOUR town?”
