YouTube – 1989 FX Electronics Commercial.wmv

Filed under: commercials,dead chains — Anita @ 1:36 am

I didn’t even know the short lived Hampton Roads electronics chain even had a commercial. We always discuss how short lived FX was, it opened in October of 1989, but apparently it at least made it to memorial day, 1990.

I think the silver robot looking thing with the round head was their mascot?

1997 Taco Bell Batmobile Contest (updated, 9/2011)

Filed under: commercials — Anita @ 9:14 pm

me on fb earlier tonight:

I remember when I was a teenager, some fast food joint was doing a drawing to win a Batmobile. Although I remember in the fine print at the bottom of the commercial it said the car was not “road legal”. I think Drew Carey show even spun a story line about Drew winning a Batmobile.

Did some youtube searching, and it was Taco Bell, 1997 (2nd commercial).


That Sears ad mentions “David Taylor” clothes. There was this … off math teacher at my middle school with the same name. First day of class he tells everybody that he’s a Christian. We were like “yeah, we don’t need to know that.”

//edit, September 11, 2011//

I was on People of Walmart today, and there was the batmobile! Batman people, is this the same batmobile?
