Like, oh my gawd! Totally tubular!!

I’m having an 80s flashback! (No, it’s not drug related. :-P)

I’ve been watching MTV circa 1983 (in stereo!) for most of the night. Someone posted three hours worth of MTV on Google Video from the time when they used to actually play music videos and stuff…

The videos are pretty cool: Night Ranger, Huey Lewis, Prince, The Police, Quiet Riot, etc. (And a really strange Tubes video called “Monkey Time”.)

But it’s actually the commercials that are the most interesting slice of 80s life. When’s the last time you saw a commercial for an Atari 2600?

If you remember the 80s fondly, check these video clips out. They’re gnarly! (That’s a good thing. ;-))
