I enjoyed the Ford commercial with footage of the amazingly ****ty cars they were making back then. And the Knoxville World's Fair clip was a bonus, too -- we moved there in '86, by which time the fair site was a white elephant.

The "athlete" in the Sox commercial looks like somebody they pulled away from his desk and put in uniform on short notice. :cool: I do think those 80s uni's are underrated, though.

That was a cheesy promo for the Sox. Its interesting that commercial breaks then only lasted about 2 and a half minutes, compared to comercial breaks now lasting between 3-5 minutes.

Not even in the team picture.

Funny, those were probably high end effects back then. I kinda remember those.

Amongst some cheesy commercials, the Sox one was by far the cheesiest.

Did anyone else think Tron? Possibly a privative Ipod commercial?

Never thought I'd see a Mike Squires pickoff set to BTO.

We had been to the Boston Sea Party in Carol Stream a few times, too.
Seafood buffets...what a concept! Are there any of these still around? I know that the Carol Stream one closed many years ago.
