Far Out Friday: Did Anyone Ever Buy Those Love Song Mixed CD’s?
If you are a child of the late 80's and overall 90's then you might remember falling asleep on a Friday night and being abruptly woken up. Well do you remember what, or who, woke you up suddenly after falling asleep with the TV on? Well here is a hint just below.
That's right! The Ultimate Love Song Collection from Time Life is the memory that is almost so ingrained in most people that hearing those first three seconds you then get activated like some sleeper agent spy. Just watch the video and tell me you don't automatically sing the second song? I will wait.
You just did it and didn't even know you knew any Michael Bolton songs except for that Lonely Island team up from SNL. This is one of those traumatizing but nostalgic moments that we all seemed to experience like the first time you ever played with a slinky and after 30 minutes happen to get a kink in it.
Well this commercial is also tied in the nostalgia archives of our brains with the Nick at Nite George Lopez reruns and being abruptly awaken by the song Low Rider. It feels like as millennials we might have had just a bit of a bad habit of falling asleep with the TV on. That could explain the movie The Ring. Did we reach far out enough into your mind to bring back the memories of this commercial? What are some other out of reach and far out nostalgic commercials, television shows, and products we need to remember? Let us know in the comments.
