Retro Commercial: Carlton Jams With the Jacksons
Since I was fairly busy during the end of last week, Michael Jackson's 50th birthday crept up on me like that panther in his "Black or White" video. This, combined with the fact that it's been awhile since I've done a Retro Commercial post led me to dig up this Pepsi spot from 1984. Making its debut on the Grammy telecast that year, this commercial featured The Jacksons and also introduced most of us to a young Alfonso Ribiero. Even after almost 25 years, this spot still kicks major ass!
Note: the link to the clip says 1988, but the commercial was actually made four years earlier.
