You know what else is world class? Visiting Allison over at Allison’s Written Words, following her blog on Facebook, and spotting her on Twitter @AllisonGeeksOut. This is just one of her many commercials from the archives (aka “The Video Collection That Collects Dust”).
One of the antique malls near my house has a booth that’s constantly filled with 80s nostalgia. Last weekend I ran across these ceramic California Raisin figures, roughly 9″ tall and marked $22 for all four. I didn’t end up buying them, but after my son asked “Who are those guys again?” we spent the evening watching raisin commercials on Youtube.
Yes, we all remember and treasure Freedom Rock, but how about Hey Love? Its line, “No, my brother, you’ve got to buy your own,” is every bit as good as “Well, turn it up man!” Don’t believe me? Watch this.
I recently bought Hot Pink Heather a crochet kit. It had some needles and other tools and a “How To Crochet” book. As I bought it, though, I had a vague memory of some commercial about a device that created little knitted circles that could be combined to make a quilt. A little searching later, and I was watching this commercial for the Knit Wit. How many times did I see this on late night 80s TV? I don’t know. But I’d sure love to have that Knit Witted butterfly afghan.
