I was watching this commercial last night and I cannot say I remember seeing back when it ran in the 1980s. My family did shop at Kmart a lot, especially for clothing for me, but I do not think we ever made out way to the Beverly Hills Blues section. It really wasn’t my style.
The 80s vibe is strong with this piece of advertising, but to be specific, it has a very ZZ Top feel to it. I kept expecting the camera to pan over to the right to see the boys in beards giving the thumbs up to the driver and his dangerously over-filled limousine.
