Vincent Price – Polaroid VHS Commercial (1985)

Vincent Price - Polaroid VHS
Vincent Price was a font of wisdom for me in my youth. He taught me the necessary things that I needed in life to prosper…smash human-fly hybrids when I encountered them in the garden, always watch your step around acid pools, and how to fake your death over and over again to throw off the authorities and interloping do-gooders. Though perhaps the greatest thing that the famed thespian ever shared with me was how to avoid dirty video heads by using Polaroid video cassettes!

    Can’t even calculate how many of those tapes I bought over the years. Even though I am now buying nothing but blurays, I kind of miss the vhs days.

  2. I hear ya, Plcary. I still have about 6 boxes full of Polaroid tapes…that I should probably mine for commercials and other various bits of nostalgia. :)
