One of the best 80’s-inspired Super Bowl XLVIII commercials has to be the one from Radio Shack.
Radio Shack mocks and reinvents themselves all in one swoop. Since most people think they still carry only outdated electronics and batteries, it’s great to see them show the world they’re not the same Radio Shack people think of from the 1980’s.
They did a great job calling their nay-sayers out, in a fun and entertaining way, featuring famous eighties stereotypes such as Mary Lou Retton, Hulk Hogan, Alf and a host of other 80’s characters. Q*BERT even makes an appearance along with the California Raisins and Chucky.
Bravo Radio Shack! Thank you for bringing back 80’s nostalgia in your 60-second ad spot during the Super Bowl this year!
