You don't see commercials like these for kids anymore. This is out of hand. Stylistically, this commercial is just like Ratt's "Round & Round" video, smoke machines, dramatic lighting, funny angles, totally awesome early 80s horror video style. Also, it has the memorable pitch: "Some guys got it, some guys don't." which i immediately remembered as soon as i found this video. I'm also glad they use an actual commercial voice guy to do the rap instead of trying to find some rap guy. Of course, Spydor would probably be better served by a heavy metal song you know?

Here's Round & Round for you just because. Featuring Milton Berle whose nephew Marshall Berle was managing Ratt at the time of the video's release. This, just for history's sake was my favorite song when it came out.
