Mr. T gets his rope chains from OroAmerica

For the toughest customers

Here’s a challenge for you. How many chains is Mr. T sporting in this 1984 jewelery advert? I think he’s managed to cover those pecks of his with 25.

The funny thing about this advert is that OroAmerica have actually underplayed the amount that Mr. T would wear. As you can see below, he could often be found with even more bling!

This completes your dose of Mr. T for today.

    I will never forget once seeing Mr.T in person (at around the time of this ad). He was coming out of Gelson’s Supermarket in Century City, L.A., wearing tight red yoga pants and getting into his silver Porche.
