I Told The Truth!

YouTube is a ginormous festering cesspool of copyright infringement, to which I say THANK GOD because they just reintroduced me to the most beloved commercial from my childhood. Does anyone remember this one? No one ever seems to, and I always thought it was hys-freakin-terical. Ahh, those wacky Mormon public service announcements. You laugh, but you know what else? You learn.

And, I mean, who can't relate? We all had the crotchety neighbor growing up who scolded us by singing opera.

Oh my good lord. I do NOT remember that one, which surprises me because I thought I remembered all things cheesy, ridiculous, and wholesome from the 80s.

Awesome. :-)

I totally remember this from way back in the day. I just wish he would have danced some of "The Carlton" to make this commercial even better!

I remember that ad! I could never figure out why a church would advertise. Were we supposed to switch? Was that even possible? Those commercials totally confused me as a kid.

Frogger said...

I'm serious! Totally Alfonso Ribeiro!

Wow. The eighties. Advertising back then just really took the shotgun approached, didn't it? Just throw out whatever you got and hope you hit someone.
