Nothing screams 1980s more than those two words.

best 80s jeans commercial is fake commercial
apology for poor audio

both the cringe-inducing dialogue and the not-even-trying-to-hide-it bite:

Molly: end-of-movie Claire
First Guy: Brian
Second Guy: Andy

I see your Jordache and raise you a Pioneer.
