In 1977 Majik Market was your source for Star Wars Cups

Have You Seen Star Wars??

I LOVE this commercial because not only is it a very early promotional tie-in for Star Wars, but it also demonstrates a level of fandom that I can still relate to. After seeing Star Wars I was babbling rapidly and probably close to incoherently to anyone who would listen and I reckon I sounded like a higher pitched version of this fella (even the accent isn’t too far off from my younger accent).

I have never been to a Majik Market, nor had I seen this commercial before it went online. If I had, I would have drunk many a Snow Biz and my childhood cabinets would have been filled with these wonderful cups.
