This 7/11 Commercial is Pure 1970s Gold

This commercial is like someone took the 1970s, chopped it down, applied some chemicals, then removed those chemicals while letting it dry in moisture negative room. Then that pure 1970s, which is now a white and gold powder is put into little bags or vials and sold at nightclubs and pinball clubs. Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, thank heaven for 7/11.

  1. I actually remember seeing this commercial back when I was a little kid. I’m happy to be a child of the 70’s. We had all the cool toys :)

    This rocks!
    If TV was still this groovy nowadays, I wouldn’t skip the commercials.

  3. Now this is how you start your morning off right! Wow. That was just awesome. Maybe not as groovy as a monkey riding a goat but definitely a close second. :)
