It’s gotta be the shoes!
I really collected these videos not because they were so amazingly funny. I’m not even sure how entertaining they were. Well, yes, they were pretty damned entertaining. But I was really amazed at how much times have changed.
Even as late as 1992 it practically looks like these commercials were shot in the early 80’s. I remember 1987 Topps baseball cards like they were yesterday. Time sure does fly. And so do the careers of incredible athletes.
