Catch it While it Lasts


The Miller Lite ad in the middle of the 5th was one of my favorites:

And the fundraising commercial for the '80 Moscow Olympics just after the Lite ad. Surprised they hadn't already announced the boycott by that point. Must've been a real bummer for American athletes in their prime. The Cold War was so... quaint.

"Even when you're just showin' off." What a great line reading. Killer.

[1] Carter didn't announce the boycott until after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, which I believe was Christmas '79.

And no I'm not a Cold War expert, but I have seen Miracle a bunch of times.
