This Ridiculous 1991 Sizzler Commercial Is The Most American Thing That Ever Existed

sizzler-video

Nothing says “Murica!” quite like freedom, over-the-top advertising, and your right to eat whatever the hell you want at a reasonable price.

This 1991 Sizzler commercial has all of these things, therefore, it is the most American thing to ever America. Overly-sentimental advertising with cringe-inducing voice-over… check. Hordes of hungry Americans huddled around an all-you-can-eat buffet… done and done.

But the greatest part, besides trying to imagine the original pitch meeting for this ad, is how this four-minute spot perfectly sums up an early 90s America. It was a country still recovering from the 80s — shown in the questionable fashion sense, a soundtrack for the tone-deaf, and heavy emphasis on value after the decade of excess. And, the steaks… Oh my, those steaks.

Please watch this…

If you’re looking for the perfect cereal couture, you should be holding on to one of these clutch handbags that are made to look like vintage cereal boxes.

Brought to us by English designer Anya Hindmarch, the cereal box clutches are part of her new Imperial collection. They’re to be featured at Hindmarch’s new Mini-Mart, which hopes to bring “luxury to the not-so-luxurious world of mini-mart products.”

The “luxury” part comes in the form of the packaging graphics printed on python skin, and accented with suede lining and gold closures. They’re GRRREAT!!

Twinkie Me, Bitch!: Breaking Bad Meets Vintage Twinkies Comics

twinkies-breaking-bad

Breaking Bad is no longer, and Twinkies are sort of in limbo. So, a big thanks to artist Brendan Tobin for resurrecting the two, with Twinkie Me, Bitch!.

The short story, inspired by vintage Hostess comic book ads, combines the recently retired TV show and the imperishable yellow sponge cake into a brilliant spoof.

Coincidentally, there’s about the same amount of lethal chemicals in Twinkies as there are in meth — so, the ending is fully plausible. Well done, sir.
