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.

    The saddest part of that commercial is the realization that someday that big hair look is going to be fashionable again.

    I like how he lip syncs “you was robbed” along with the girls.

    my fav was “If you didn’t…you’re a hockey puck.” He’s then of course bombarded with pucks.

    This…isn’t some sort of early April Fool’s Joke?

    Wow, these commercials used to scare, yet fascinate me as a child. Oh, Philadelphia, how I miss you!
