Subway: “We Cut Prices Too!” (circa 1992)

Oh, this takes me back! Once upon a time, you could get a pretty decent sub at Subway for a pretty decent price. Now, you have to ask for the toppings like 5 times in order to get 3 little slivers of onion, bell pepper, or olive. Things went downhill fast when they changed the way they cut the bread.

I still say Blimpie was the superior fast food sandwich, though.

TBS Tonight: “Submarine X-1” (circa 1989)

Has anyone actually seen this film? I should add it to my Friday night flix list…

Sugar: “Sweet, Pure, and Natural” (circa 1988)

I can’t even begin with this.

WXIA-TV Atlanta 11 Alive News EXTRA: “Superstitions” (circa 1988)

Only Atlanta’s finest new source would DARE to go so far in-depth on the important subjects of our time: ARE YOU SUPERSTITIOUS?

Surevue Contact Lenses (circa 1993)

I dunno about y’all, but I’ve been wearing the same pair of contacts for 3 years now. Maybe I should switch to Surevue?

Introducing the Hershey Symphony Bar (circa 1989)

Say what you will about the lower quality of most American chocolates, I still enjoy a “fancy” Hershey bar from time to time!

Ad Council: “Take Pride In America: Clint Eastwood” (circa 1989)

Remember when Eastwood was a “bleeding heart liberal” who cared about the environment?

Target: “Right on the money” (circa 1989)

We never shopped at Target because it was too expensive.

Texas Instruments Computer Fun: “Class of 2001” (circa 1988)

Ah, those halcyon days when there was so much promise and optimism for the millennial generation!

Actually, I have opinions about the term “millennial” and how it applies to the Class of 2001. It’s weird for me.

Ultra Tide: “Soccer” (circa 1992)

Before “soccer mom” was a pejorative, there were the detergent commercials.
