After Muffy did that product placement topic,
i though that it would be fun to start a topic for ads and tv-commercials made by 80s stars in the 80s.

And a funny tv-commercial:

Commercial for Corey Haim and Corey Feldman hotline

Awesome thread.. totally remember the Michael J. Fox one being a Superbowl commercial. Also, remember Elisabeth Shue's Burger King commerical with McCarthy and Phoebe Cates's Oxy.


Brooke Shields - Calvin Klein

Clint Eastwood or Dirty Harry - Crack Cocaine

Jason Alexander - McDonald's McDLT

Is this Seth Green in this Burger King Commercial?

Brad Pitt - Pringles

This is probably my fav Burger King commercial ever because of the people in it!

I think Lineker only started doing those ads in the 90's, so probably not. Did he ever have a mullet?

Definitely not; looks more like Brad Pitt in a Pringles commercial.

I wish there´d be more Phoebe stuff, oneyedwilly!

BTW, can they still say "our product is better than this certain product..." in american commercials?
I was just curious because they can´t do it here.

Here's a few I've found from combing YouTube, ranging from anti-drug PSAs to Coca-Cola.

Reggie Jackson - Cocaine the Big Lie

Bill Cosby - Coca-Cola (He did a ton of spots for Coke back in the '80s, so this is just one of them)

Stephen King - American Express

Brooke Shields - American Lung Association

Mr. T - Burger King Whopper

We are talking Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue, and Sarah Michelle Gellar.. wow! That casting director hit the jackpot.

I always thought it was so weak of McDonald's to sue Sarah Michelle Gellar personally over one of her Burger King Commercials.
