I hate to think there was a time in our history that we had to be told that peanut butter and chocolate were amazing together, but this ad took great pains to deliver this message in the strongest of terms. “Hey dumb-dumbs!” it seems to say, “Eat these things together. All the cool kids are doing it.”
Not only was a delicious candy bar made, the beloved Reese’s Cup, but a slogan that lives on in time was born:Two great tastes that taste great together.
For the youngsters in the group today, the young people are listening to WalkMen. Or WalkMans. I don’t know the plural. They were the forerunners of diskmen which were sort of like prehistoric ipods, which were early iphones. It’s all terribly confusing.
Let us take a moment to acknowledge the man who takes time from his busy day to stick his nose into these kids’ business. No dude, you’re not creepy at all.
I will also state for the record, no one in the 80’s would have been found dancing down the street sticking her paws into a crock of peanut butter. Cocaine? Maybe. But NOT peanut butter. Eww.
