Worst TV commercials of the '80s? No! A true gem (aka 'Why Steve now wants to drive a Plymouth Duster')



Is this TV commercial for the 1985 Plymouth Duster the worst commercial of the decade? Or simple misunderstood genius? My vote: GENIUS!

Sure, the costumes and acting are a little dated. And the hairstyles? Well, I can't rock those anymore. But I'd rank the actual song ahead of any of the tripe-filled medical-waste bags that are up for a Grammy on Sunday night.

So here's the drill: Name the hidden gems among '80s TV commercials. We'll do a podcast with the 10 best. Please include a URL where we can watch the video whenever possible.
