Ahh, the 80's. Some of the greatest commercials of all time were created in the 80's. Huh? What's that? You say they were mad cheesy and beyond corny? Well let's go to the tape shall we?
Transformers Action Masters
Transformers that don't actually transform? Mom can I have three or four? Wait, you say they're also smaller than real Transformers? Mom I'd rather have these than eat. Surprisingly, Action Masters never quite took off.
"He helps you tackle even the toughest challenge." What, Donkey Kong? Nevertheless, I wanted "Rob" when I was a kid. It looked so cool. I thought it would be like the robot in "Revenge Of The Nerds," and serve drinks, clean the house, and whatnot. I hear that it did none of those things. What were the Japanese good for?
This needs no commentary.
My Buddy/Kid Sister
Holy shit these commercials are creepy. Why does she kiss the doll?
My mom got my Coleco Vision from Lionel's Playworld in '82. I hope to God she didn't spend $170 on it. It was a cool system and I had fun, but it wasn't worth $170 circa early 80's. And that answering machine? My God. Well, I guess parents could afford those things back then, when gas was somewhere south of $3.20/gallon.
I have never warmed Pop Tarts up in a toaster. I didn't realize you were "supposed" to do that, until I got to high school. I just got a cold glass of milk, opened that pack, and got to munching. Cinnamon-Brown sugar is the all time greatest flavor.
Is that Urkel?
