One of the best things about YouTube is that it allowed, nay compelled people to compile and post all of the commercials from their aging 1980’s videotape collections. Why am I hypnotized by these?
While I am not a fan of commercials, there is the nostalgia factor to consider. They don’t take you back because you like the commercials. They take you back because you remember what it was like to be younger and have these annoying jingles drilled into your head day after day. You watch these and hope that some commercial will remind you what it was like to be 8 years old again, unlocking some new memory. Or something. And because people with feathered hair selling designer jeans is funny too.
