I didn’t watch much of the big game last night, and I haven’t YouTubed all of the commercials. But I’ve seen this one pop up on Facebook and several blogs, and I’m not afraid to say that it is hands-down the greatest Super Bowl commercial of all-time.
So much 80s awesomeness here…Hulk Hogan, Ponch, Cliff, Alf, Chucky, Jason, Teen Wolf, Sgt. Slaughter, Dee Snider…I could go on, but you get the point.
Thank you, Radio Shack, for bringing a little joy to my life.
The greatest advertising campaign in television history was Budweiser’s “Bud Bowl,” starting in 1989. I only remember the first two, but they actually kept this thing going through most of the 1990s during the Super Bowl. Check out Mike’s memories of the ads at the X-Entertainment blog. You can also watch Bud Bowl 3, Bud Bowl IV, and Bud Bowl VI at RetroJunk.
