True believers! I know that I always seem to mention here the simpler times of yesteryear. But hey that’s only because of how fucked up the world has felt for the last couple of years or so. These days people seem to fight about everything even in pop culture demonizing each other politically becuz of it! There was a time though where things just were not this damn polarizing, believe it or not! So let’s take a moment to go back to the seventies and take a quick look at the Marvel Comics publication called Pizzaz!! OH YEEEEAH!
“Pizzaz” was a pop culture magazine Marvel Comics put out that dealt with important things, pop stars like Shaun Cassidy for instance and even more important characters like The Incredible HULK! Only running for 16 issues I guess it just didn’t have enough drama for even the 1970s! But man if this commercial doesn’t bring back bring back some memories of simpler less dramatic times…
Could it be true? The Twinkie is gone forever?! No more Ho Ho’s?! No more Ding Dongs?! Or those fruit pies? Or those Cup Cakes? Well truth be told I never ate many Twinkies or Hostess stuff in general when I was a kid, I really wanted to but Mom was always warning me that they were way too bad for me to consume! I was more of a Little Debbie kinda guy. That probably wasn’t much better really. I did however seriously love the Marvel Twinkie mini comics they’d put into the regular issues!
Anyway today we hear the news that Twinkies may be gone for good (which I highly doubt) I can’t say I am too sad but somewhere people are probably really upset! So here’s a few vintage Twinkie commercials in honor of one of the strangest most unhealthy kids snacks of all time!
