Today’s Assignment: publish a post you’d like your ideal audience member to read, and include a new-to-you element in it.
Happy early Throwback Thursday Blogging 101 and beyond! For this post, I’m including a few clips from a favourite YouTube channel.
As in “where-did-those-three-hours-disappear-to” favourite channel.
Retro Winnipeg is celebrating 10 years of tasty local and national television ads and shows packed with nostalgia. Back to the 80s baby. With a healthy helping of public-access/locally-produced big hair and bright lips.
I’m starting with a promotional ad for the Winnipeg Jets 1.0 from the 1993-94 season. Watch for some giant hair at 0:04, a monster check by Keith Tkachuk at 0:08 and beauty pass by the Finnish Flash, Teemu Selanne, at 0:16. Unmute for the ultimate soundtrack.
I could not resist this ad for a local car dealership from 1986. Anyone born pre-1980 in Winnipeg, or in the province of Manitoba, will remember this classic…”Wicked”…
Last clip, but this is a two-for-one deal. First you get the iconic Nick Hill with a Kern-Hill Furniture ad circa 1988 and then a hilarious send-up from his son 2006 in support of the Winnipeg Humane Society.
