Hey Ian Ziering, peel me a Crush Soda Pop

Before he was in Beverly Hills 90210 and Sharknado New Jersey born Ian Ziering made an appearance in this very eighties ad for Crush soda. I am a big fan of fruit-flavored sodas, but Crush was not common in my area when I was growing up. So even to this day it seems exotic and special to me.

This commercial is wonderful on so many levels. The colors, which in addition to feeling very eighties also perfectly encapsulate what to expect when pouring a Crush, are amazing. The music is upbeat and memorable. And of course the fashions, which really show you what was happening as the mid-eighties became the late eighties.
