RadioShack Goes Back To The 80s For Nostalgic Super Bowl Commercial (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Oh RadioShack, the 80s called!

In a clever play on a classic insult, RadioShack shows it pays to be able to laugh at yourself in its 2014 Super Bowl commercial.

The funny spot pulls various 80s stereotypes together, from Hulk Hogan and Chucky the demon doll to Alf and Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Rhetton, all of whom converge on the electronics store to steal throwback electronics like VHS players.

RadioShack's point is they've reinvented their store. But the real point is that the 80s were amazing, obviously.

As the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks battle for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers compete for another prize: your attention. Each time that FOX cuts away from Super Bowl XLVIII to pay the bills, another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers was unveiled (although many had been teased or released in advance). Take a look around your Super Bowl party. Are people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?
