  1. PG&E…before Enron's "Death Star" scheme.
    I'm not sure, but I think Taco Bell still hasn't won the promised "Franchise Wars."
    "Saffola tastes…better" still stuck in my head after 33 years.
    33 years later, M*A*S*H still airs on MeTV at 7 and 7:30 PM.
    Wow, that Stevie Wonder Drunk Driving PSA really stuck in my head all these years.
    You've got to wonder what that 15 month old baby (now probably 33 years old) is doing now, minus a mother?
    $399 to Europe…how times have changed! That being said, international travel is a lot nicer with movies and video games on the little seatback screens.
    MJB…I remember getting some of this coffee when I moved out of my mom's house, and realizing I shouldn't have, because it was weak and repulsive coffee.
    AirCal was cheap air travel before it was cool.

  2. I wonder what it is that makes so many people misidentify actors or just people in general. Several comments have guesses about actors who look nothing like who they think they are.

  3. Hi, I hope you have some more of those old KTVU Commercials since I grew up here in the San Francisco bay area. These brought back lots of memories when I was just a kid growing up in 86. Well, I still live here in the San Francisco bay area. These were the days before it turned into Fox in 88. Thanks for taking us all down memory lane with your videos.

  4. Taco Bell-nowadays "seasoned ground beef" isnt whats being used

    People Express-Book a flight..pay with your soul!

  5. Omg the feels with this one. I grew up in Northern California in the 80's. I watched KTVU2 slot. Ty!!!!

  6. The voiceover announcer for Kraft Rancher's Choice Creamy Dressing commercial, is voiced by the late Mel Blanc, who played Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird and more.

  7. @4:57 At first, I thought the little girl was…Britney Spears. But Spears would've only been 5 or 6 at the time this aired. But this girl LOOKS familiar.

  8. @15:35 Michelle Lee star of the long running CBS primetime drama "Knots Landing" (one of the longest running one hour network dramas after "Bonanza" and "Gunsmoke")

  9. 9. I remember when this restaurant only serve taco. Now, you see all this new crap that they have!
    14. I got the thirsties but not for the 20s!
    21. Interesting sponsor for a commercial for PSA!
    30. If I use this will I be transported on a sailboat too!?
    31. I reckon this got me emotional!

  10. I remember Safeway back in my native MD/DC Metropolitan.
    Emery…haven't heard of them in 3 decades. Memorable ad, so 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton.
    Anti-drunk driving PSA'S such as Stevie Wonder shown here helped save my life & encourage my priority to be a licensed driver opposed to being a drinker.
    Thanks for the nostalgia 80's vault.

  11. The guy in the Safeway commercial is Peter Jason. He was in some of John Carpenter's movies along with a bunch of other stuff.
