Ah! Laser Tag! I always had mine set in wide beam (or "shotgun"/wuss mode) because I was a lousy shot. (It also helped covering up the sensor on your vest)

I had photon it sucked and it cost a fortune.

Oooh! The G.I. Joe commercial break bumpers are just how I remember them.

That sounds like Peter Cullen at the begining! Scratch that! THAT IS PETER CULLEN!!

Yep. Peter Cullen. Venger himself. He's had quite a long career.

I thought that was him but I wasn't sure. Peter also did voices in the Gobots, and so did Arthur Burghardt.

Didn't anyone notice George Clooney in the Facts of Life promo?

The guy at 1:27 looks as if he is trying to give The Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money.

I remember hearing somewhere that, after years of doing these commercials, DiMaggio was disenchanted by young people who wanted his autograph because he was "Mr. Coffee" and had no idea about his baseball career.

Something seems misleading here... is it 37 cents for one 5x7 print, with a much greater sitting fee that we're not told about?

Or is this all to get Cheapskate Mom to come in for a big sales pitch in hopes that she'll put away her change purse and actually buy the deluxe package of 75 prints, with a pose in front of each background. With 5x7, 8x10, 3x5, 36x24x36... wait, maybe not that last one!

And if these are "portraits for Christmas," why are none of the backdrops holiday-themed?! I guess they bring those out for Easter...

That Colorburst 250 Instant Camera is as big as the kid's head using it.

Corrected - thanks!

Typo alert: It says "Roger Cole - Capitol Records" in the description but it's actually "David Cole".


Comment posted in ON TV - The Who Rocks America Confirmation Test (1982) by Szake on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014 at 12:13pm CT

On December 17, 1982, At Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, the Who played the "last concert of our farewell tour," which was shown around North America on pay-per-view satellite-cable TV to closed-circuit arena outlets.
