Sometimes a TV commercial can be like a time capsule of a whole era. This commercial is all about the 80's - a lot! In the ad a young Alfonso Ribeiro (sitcom second banana in "Silver Spoons" & "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air") shows off his dancing skills, and how you too can someday be as cool as Carlton.
Afternoon cartoon time used to be littered with these sorts of ads, and usually they were rip-offs that only succeeded in getting your mom to yell at you. This ad is for more than just a Ginsu knife, or an inside-the-egg-scrambler - your $19.99 earns you the rare privilege to buy into a whole new lifestyle. Not only do you get a breakdancing book, but also a poster, two rap LP's, and best of all - a giant sheet of cardboard to perfect your moves.
