Reba McEntire for Goody’s Headache Powder

When I think headache powder, I cannot help but think of a bygone era. It is the type of medicine that you would stumble upon in your Nana’s medicine chest and question her incessantly about. It is also the type of medicine that Reba McEntire was using up to at least the mid-eighties. Reba was probably a little over thirty when they broadcast this commercial and she had a pretty sweet hairdo at the time. I wonder if getting it up like that is what caused all these headaches?

According to the uploader of this video, this commercial was showing during the movie “Psycho” being broadcast in February 1987 on SuperStation WTBS.
