    It's supposed to have an 80s feel, right? Well, what's Kid from House Party doing it? That's a 90s movie.

      Eh. 1990 is pretty much is a belated 80's year before the 90's came to
      be anyway.I mean,look at all the bright colors, tacky clothing, and hair
      metal still being into place at that year.

        I'm not sure it was supposed to be strictly 80s only. Hulk Hogan was still around and popular in the 90s, as well.

          Yeah, pretty much everything from the mid 80s was still popular in the early 90s, at least it was to me. I remember watching so many 80s movies in the early 90s as a kid.

            Actually, he's part of Kid 'N Play. A hip-hop/comedy duo that was popular in the late 80s and early 90s. House Party was their first acting role, but they were really more known for their music.

            They started their career in 1986, so for that, they definitely count for this commercial.

              I think it was.
