You will love this Eighties Commercial for New York’s BQE Gym

Oh, eighties New York how I miss you. Ads like this ran on TV all the time when I was a kid and I didn’t even blink an eye. The accents just sounded like how people talked. As my accent has faded over the years, I find it reassuring to tune in and listen to the voices of my youth.

I am not sure what year the BQE went out of business, but looking on Yelp it looks like the location is still fitness related in the form of an Ultimate Fitness. I just hope traces of it remain like the Sky High Arena and the…bar??
