The most 80s ad ever? Plymouth Duster

Almost runs like an 80s parody now.

That's Finola Hughes.

Yes and tacky as hell.

The 80s have NOT improved with age.

I like the comment that it looks as though it was filmed inside a cocaine factory.

Where's the beef?

Horrible commercial for a horrible car. I wonder if she was embarrassed pushing junk?

The polaroid camera was the icing on the cake.

R4, it was work.

It'a amazing how little of the CAR you see.

That's one big stick.

It was a crappy car. It's the one thing Chrysler is consistent at - shitty cars.

Exactly what I thought when I was watching. There's not one full length shot of the thing. I was curious because a college boyfriend drove a '70s Duster. Had no idea it was produced into the '80s. The name is all wrong for the '80s. And the car, too.

I had a 73 Duster, and the car wasn't the greatest, but that Chrysler slant 6 engine was en engineering marvel.

That could have passed off as a Robin Sparkles (I think that was her 80's pop name) parody on How I Met Your Mother.

There was a lot of bad '80s stuff out there that has not aged well, but some of it was just cheesy fun. Pop music could use a little more fun.

Always loved Finola Hughes. Was this before The Saturday Night Fever sequel she was in? Quite a dancer!

And honestly, I think the 80's are pretty awesome!

R14, this ad came out over a year after "Staying Alive."

by Anonymousreply 1509/21/2013

Is that really Finola Hughes? I wouldn't have recognized her. But the only things I'm aware of her acting in are "Staying Alive" and "General Hospital" so I can see where she might need the work.

Wasn't she on Silver Spoons or some other 80's sitcom for a while?

by Anonymousreply 1809/22/2013

She was on Blossom at the end as the Dad's new wife. She had a young daughter who was brought into to be the new cute kid. Sad that I know that...

I'm pretty sure that's Hughes. The way she bends and looks through her legs is something only a dancer could do.

Don't cry, Finola, you'll streak your yellow face paint.
