Ranking the funniest retro commercials from Live in Front of a Studio Audience
Live in Front of a Studio Audience
During Tuesday night's Live in Front of a Studio Audience telecast, you might've noticed a few ads sprinkled throughout that fit in a bit too perfectly with the classic Facts of Life and Diff'rent Strokes episodes. Turns out they were products of Live's exec producer and host Jimmy Kimmel, Ryan Reynolds, and their respective production companies, Kimmelot and Maximum Effort.
"I took a DNA test recently and it turns out 20% of my body is comprised of 1980s nostalgia," Reynolds told PEOPLE. "In fact, I almost appeared as Max Headroom. Seriously."
The mind reels at what could've been had Ryan Reynolds have gone full computer-generated TV host. But what we did get was a heaping helping of retro ads starring Alfonso Ribeiro, Jennifer Beals, Bob Vila, and David Leisure.
But which of these fauxmmercials was the funniest? Let's count 'em down!
