An Early Eighties Ad for San Diego’s Sea World

I love the colorful graphics and all around mixed up craziness of this ad for San Diego’s Sea World. This was the type of ad that fueled my theme park, zoo and aquarium dreams throughout my youth. Raising my expectations to ridiculous level only to have me disappointed when dolphins and orcas were not leaping over each other and giving me hugs while “Up with People” serenaded me.
