HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.
If any of you know me, you know how badly I shit my pants when I rediscovered these commercials.
Do you remember them? Late 80′s/early 90′s? Leslie Nielson? Coors Light spokesman? HALLOWEEN FAN?????
Allow me to refresh your memory:
YEAH. I THOUGHT YOU’D REMEMBER!
Seriously. If I had to die today and with my last breath give two final “I love you”s, they’d be to Coors Light and Halloween. Maybe beef jerky too, but that’s another story. How good were these commercials? How could Leslie Nielson and Coors Light get away with this kind of stuff? Nice cans????
I have done my mourning for Nielson. I was such a huge fan, nerdily buying every one of his movies as they came out (perk of working in a record store in high school), always impressed with his comedy (Dracula: Dead and Loving It!). His impact and popularity were obvious, evidenced by the abundance of commercial deals and sponsorships he was able to procure during that time period. None more important than the Coors Light ones, obviously.
