Great Moments In Commercial History: Krass Bros.

Reader Joshua writes:

Meghann, anyone from Philadelphia will remember the immortal commercials for the Krass Brothers clothing store.

Boy, we can see why. If one only has 9 seconds to make an impression that will last, this’ll do it. Indeed, this commercial may be our dying thought. All things being equal, Philadelphia is a strange place.

Haven’t had enough of the Krass Bros.? There are more.
