If you’re reading this right now, I bet you’re recovering from a long, happy and festive holiday weekend. So instead of writing something about Lingerie Football, midgets or ladies who do weird things to ice cream, I’m going to go easy on you and just post five random Oklahoma’ish YouTube videos.
The first one is below, the rest are after the jump:
1. 1990’s The Mathis Brothers
My favorite is the second commercial, where they talk about 89ers baseball, Cavalry basketball and Blazers hockey. I guess it’s my favorite part because those sports teams are no longer around and I’m amused by simple irony. My second favorite part are the wood chairs with white cushions. They look the ones in Clark Matthews’ dining room.
2. Vintage News9 Promo
Apparently, the Oklahoma spirit is to now “confirm” our blog posts and not give us credit
3. Al Eschabach Oklahoma Cavalry Commercial
Yeah, we’ve already posted this on the site, but since I’m kind of on the topic of local news organizations not giving blogs proper due, I figured this would be a good opportunity to expose The Sports Animal…again.
4. Random Local Commercials from the 1970s
I’m not sure if it’s good or bad that the guy at the end of the Certified Furniture Rental commercial looks like he could currently fit in at any bar on Classen Circle on a Saturday night, but I am sure he’d throw a fun party.
5. What’s on the menu at Crossroads Mall
Mall Director: “Sales are down and we’re losing customers, what should we do!”
Local Ad Agency: “How about an ad promoting the food choices?”
Mall Director: “Great Idea! I’m looking forward to a long and successful working relationship.”
