Snail Damage And Chimp Puppets In Texas

If internet historians like the ladies and gentlemen at Everything is Terrible have demonstrated anything it is the supposition that commercials are only annoying at the time of their original airing. It is only when one of these terrifying mishmashes of imagery and catchphrases interrupts an episode of Dick Wolf’s newest fetish that we turn to our DVR to save us. Only years later will their genius truly be appreciated. Such is the reasoning behind posting this, over nine glorious minutes of commercials from the Fort Worth/ Dallas are, circa 1990. Come for Westway Ford and Trophy Nissan; stay for Channel 21 KTXA’s prime time lineup.

    Whats really sad is that Trophy Nissan’s jingle is still the same after all these years.

    I’m so confused by the snail commercial.

    Being from Dallas, at least half of these are actually familiar to me, although they’re older commercials. A lot of those used car dealerships are still around, with the same jingles. :P
