Top Coverage - "Stop Looking Bald" (Commercial, 1981)

Views: 678

Here's a commercial for the anti-balding solution, "Top Coverage" - a sort of spray-paint for your bald spot. Who knew they had this as far back as 1981 (or five years earlier as the spot claims)? I think I only became aware of this or similar products in the late-1990s once infomercials took off.

"Available now at all Osco Drug stores."
