Pole Position – Anti-Yuppie Commercial

I am not sure if this is a video game commercial for Atari’s release of Pole Position or a statement against Yuppie culture in the 1980s. My whole time in the 1980s, I never met a person that came even close to what people caricatured as Yuppies. So I always assumed they came from exotic place, like California. Whatever the message of this ad, it is a great piece. I love when that hand comes down and picks up the car.
