This commercial is for the Kmart Father’s day sale from 1981 and it puts the spotlight on a few things that Dad might have received that year. First up in a boombox, which is probably the “coolest” of their gift suggestions. It is followed by a portable vacuum, a smoke alarm and a portable CB radio (the second coolest). I like how they try to push the smoke alarm.
You need to protect your dad. Why don’t you want to protect your dad? Don’t you love him? Buy him this smoke detector!
