Back in February, my friend Kristin sent me a TON of her old tapes that she recently converted to DVD. LOTS of commercial gems on these tapes. I’ve slowly been trying to upload them. Once you read the description you’ll know why I included this set in this blog:

Kristin’s Simpsons Commercial Break:
This was during the Maggie’s first word episode. Includes:

-Streetfighter for Super Nintendo (again!)
-Duracell batteries (remember that battery tester on the package! I thought that was the coolest thing ever when I was a little kid.)
-Levi’s 501 jeans
-YET ANOTHER Home Alone 2: Lost In New York promo
-Batman The Animated series
-1992 Billboard Music Awards promo
-Martin promo
-Montgomery Ward (!!!) price cuts sale

I don’t like…understand the commercial. Where is that man and that woman at? Where are they reporting from? A radio station newsroom? Why does it remind me of one of the final scenes of that MST3K film “Rocket Attack USA” where the radio newsman is telling his wife and baby over the radio that he’ll probably never see them again because the Russian nuclear weapon that looks like a pen is heading straight to the city.

  1. “We’ve got price cuts all over Electric Avenue.” The Eddy Grant allusion makes the Monty Ward ad’s newscaster format all the more improbable. And funny.

    Long live The Last VCR!

  2. How many commercial breaks does a Simpsons episode contain in the US? 3?
