Crapper Justin Cook submitted this commercial and writes: John Cena in a Gillete commercial. I don’t remember ever seeing him with a beard, so this commercial is really odd to me.

5 Submitted by on Fri, 19 April 2013, 00:00
This is a 1997 commercial from Raw for Milton Bradley Karate Fighters (think “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots” but with Karate action figures kicking instead of robots punching) featuring a “tournament” where a midget Luchador named “Shrimp Scampi” (har-har!) competes in a grueling match.

11 Submitted by on Mon, 15 April 2013, 02:51
I can’t embed this one, but check out Doug “The Nostalgia Critic” Walker’s hilarious review of the Hulk Hogan movie Suburban Commando. The movie isn’t quite as much fun as No Holds Barred, but it’s still worth watching just for Christopher Lloyd alone. But that’s not all!

It Came From YouTube: Sting’s Sprite commercial

7 Submitted by on Sun, 14 April 2013, 00:00
Crapper Jordan Mishkin sent in this hilarious Sprite soft drink commercial featuring Sting. I always loved this one… and not just because Sting is straight-up beating the tar out of a poor, helpless 12 year old. Sting tells the kid he’s from “The Dream Come True Fantasy Foundation” which presumably is like “The Make-A-Wish Foundation”. So, I assume the kid has to Continue Reading...

6 minutes, 22 seconds into this block of 1995 commercials is an ad for the then-upcoming WWF Fan Festival ’95. It was basically the pre-curser to the modern “Axxess” events (that’s their stupid spelling, not mine). It was held in the Hartford Civic Center in the days leading up to WrestleMania XI. This was deep into the “bad period” for Continue Reading...
