Billy Zabka is VERY Enthusiastic about Clean Tiles in this 1984 Commercial for Tilex

When not excellently portraying bad boys in eighties films, the great Billy Zabka, played a young baseball player with a profound interest in tile care in this retro commercial for Tilex. After watching it, I think you will find that while you remember Billy for the toughness he brought to all of his characters in his movie work, you will be forever haunted by his delivery of the line, “Soap scum? What’s soap scum?”
