The Bionic Man Drinks Diet Rite


This commercials reminds me of the comic book ads where you would be turned from a zero to a hero by following a simple regimen of push up and red meat. Of course now its the 80s and you just cant be fit by eating red meat anymore. But don’t dismay you just need to crack open a diet rite and work those guns/do cocaine to get fit. Soon every bleach blond honey within 2 miles of your pad in Malibu will come running. Who knows, you might even steal one away from All-American uber-stud Lee Majors.

    After seeing that advertisement, I really need to stop fantasizing about Lee Majors. Well, one more time.
