I don’t blame the alien in this animated intermission ad for Drive-In concession stands traveling so far for some snacks, there is just something irresistible about the food at the Drive-In.

    This made me nostalgic to find the nearest drive in to me. About an hour away, unfortunately, but I just may make that trip.

    Apparently this alien didn’t take heed from another brown extraterrestrial who decided to eat and drink his way into an early grave.

  3. @Vinvectrex Let me know, my friend, if your nearest Drive-In happens to have this particular ad! :)

    @Cosmic Joker That still hasn’t been proven, friend! ;)
