I love this commercial featuring the band Oingo Boingo and its frontman Danny Elfman popping through different scenes with impish glee. He seems to be threading that needle of riffing on the beer ads while apparently having fun doing it, all in a style that merges 80s advertising with the burgeoning music genre.
I do not remember this ad getting a lot of play in my region sadly and it wasn’t until it was online that I saw this longer version of the ad. It is very full of the eighties, so be prepared…
