The year is 1987. Michael Jackson’s “Bad” reigned on the Billboard Charts, a gallon of gas was $0.89 and Ryan Oliver Alexander Rosado (R.O.A.R.) was born. While cleaning my apartment the other weekend I stumbled upon a little booklet filled with ads from 1987. They’re from Seek Publishing’s “Remember When” series. Thought I’d share them in all their glory. Blast from the past with some ads:
I remember wearing these.
In the days of cassette tapes.
M&M’s keeps it simple here with minimal text and composition. Rare for 1987 I’d say.
I guess people had more time to read ads back then.
Even back then women were concerned with highlights despite the dramatic hair styles.
Whitening toothpaste was also around back then as well.
Something I can clearly remember from 1987.
Still in style today.
Saved the best for last. Remember the bricks?
My how we have come a long way. If you remember any other killer ads from 1987, feel free to drop a comment and let your ROAR be heard.
