Vintage Rigas Tekstils Clothing Commercial
Soviet Union - circa 1978
Whilst digging around I found this weird little 1978 commercial ad for Rigas Tekstils' women's clothing line. It's shot on a dark, rickety old streetcar in some rather dreary locations (reminds me of an old Italian or European horror film!), and though quite tacky (as the uploader on YouTube said it was), still manages to have a certain cheap vibe that I can appreciate--for my own dark reasons.
Besides, you just gotta love the cheesy downbeat muzak droning in the background, and those dated '70s flannel outfits! I have no idea what the narrator is saying and I don't care. I groove on low rent junk like this.
