Two Kids Infomercials Get Inspiration from 1980s Movies

I have a guest post at The Retroist blog titled Piggyback Aliens and Turbo Pak Commercials Pay Homage to Classic 80s Movies which discusses a couple of recent infomercials for kids that were clearly inspired by blockbuster films of the 1980s.

Maybe this trend re-enacting old movies will replace that of using really obnoxious jingles to sell kids’ products.

A big thank you with extra salt and butter to reader Kurdt for letting us know about the Turbo Pack infomercial, along with his comment, “The product is really ‘meh’ but the infomercial is one of the best I’ve ever seen! How many longplay ads have frog urine in them?”
