I’m a sucker for anything retro that has to do with horror movies. Even if the retro fun involved is with a terrible sequel. And the terrible sequel that I’m talking about is 1988’s Return Of The Living Dead Part II. Sure, it had a little bit of charm – but the comedy mostly fell flat, unlike it’s predecessor in 1985. Whatever feelings I have for ROTLD Part II, I can push aside for a minute to enjoy this lovely little promo ad for the merchandise that you could have purchased in 1988 to support the film.
Did that put as big of a smile on your face as it did mine? I miss these kinds of ads (usually attached to the VHS copies after the movie was over), and that’s exactly why I love Youtube because you can always revisit them. Hopefully you’re not dumb enough to call the 1-800 number included in the ad though to try and order something. Ebay is your only hope for any of these items, so if you’ve been clambering to get your hands on a Return Of The Living Dead Part II tank top, race on over and get to some searching! I think I’ll avoid the stampede myself, so you guys have at it.
