J.C. Penney 1987 Denim Commercial Is Totally Rad, Ridiculous (VIDEO, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

They had us at "white-wash."

This J.C. Penney video is the latest viral fashion video making the rounds, as enthusiastically nostalgic editors like ourselves embrace the cheesiness that was 1980s denim.

See Julie, in her "fast-moving denim outfit" featuring a stone wash jacket and scrunchies "of every imaginable color!" See Joe, with an unbuttoned shirt flapping in the wind and his super hip "white-wash Levi's." See Tracy in her "big, baggy blue bib overalls" (yes, that's supposed to be an appealing description)!

In short, see all of 1987's finest denim and thank the fashion gods that we emerged from the 1980s intact. Happy Friday, people!
