Who knew Cliff King was so multi-talented  :)

I never knew that Cliff King and Max Headroom were played by the same actor!

Yup, the one in the same knife-happy bad guy played by Matt Frewer.  ;)  

 

This one got a LOT of airtime when the Macintosh was introduced:

A little over the top, if you ask me.

Yes!!!  Directed by Ridley Scott, one of the most famous commercials of all time.

Some times I like to watch these to get this 80s mood (I know I'm crazy) but still they are cool to watch

I thought Luther Vandross singing the Juicy Fruit theme was a little silly, but hey, it's Luther!

Nice finds @summer84 and you may be right. Looking at his bio though on his webpage doesn't he seem more like the graphics design guy for the commercials and films?

Yeah, you're right unfortunately it's not him. He isn't credited on IMdb either for having a part in that Pepsi commercial.

There are several articles on different websites about the commercial, but none in which the actors names are mentioned.

I wish my time machine was working so I could experience these commercials for the first time again.

It is a bit like traveling back in time isn't it, to the times of youth .  You know.....waaaaay back.   :)

Here's a different take on an earlier one I posted:

I definitely remember this one! Great song, great album!

Didn't Michelob also do one with the Rain Man theme song?

I am a big Winwood fan for a long time now.  He had some great music in the 80s and earlier.

You got me there on the Rain Man theme ?(

I could be wrong. I would have been maybe 10 yrs old, but Rain Man is was my favorite movie, and it REALLY stuck out to me. I have been wrong many times on this site :)

I do know what you mean....and these commercials bring me back to that time in my life. Commercials these days don't have this kind of style and flash, imo.

Yes, these commercials take me back to the good times of my youth.  I could watch these for hours and it will bring a smile to my face.

If you're crazy then save me a seat on that train, I do the same.  I really enjoy going back and checking out all the commercials we watched back in the day
