Enjoy this Star-studded Eighties Commercial for Wendy’s Big Classic

In this mid-eighties ad for Wendy’s Big Classic, Nick from “Family Ties” (Scott Valentine) entertains and educates everyone at a drive-in movie theater by talking about the Wendy’s Big Classic. It is hard to make out all the young actors in the crowd, but I definitely recognize a few including Nancy from “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (Heather Langenkamp).

We don’t get to hears Nick’s entire speech about the Big Classic, but it must a pretty lively bit of rhetoric because by the end of the commercial the crowd looks like they are going to storm the snack stand and tear it down if they don’t receive their Big Classics.
