Vintage Mays Discount Store TV commercials
New York - 1979
"Every day is a sale day at Mays!" Can't get this little jingle out of my head lately! :) Kind of catchy. Here's two more fun old TV commercials (clip contains both) for now-defunct New York area Mays discount stores. These were actually recorded off-air from Betamax in 1979(!), according to the YouTube uploader. May not be a "mall", but man do these old retail commercials still take me back to that whole trip again just the same!
And dig on the classic Mattel handheld electronic football game in the first spot! YES!!! I actually got one of those babies my own self that year for Christmas (and then got a brand new one from Target for my birthday a couple years ago). I wistfully remember laying on my groovy waterbed playing it in the dark into the wee hours of the morning several nights in a row that Christmas. Definitely a member of the Numb Thumb Club here! Hehe.
