From quarter machines to those weird chicken coop vending things, cheap prizes were doled out in...

That Time Phil Collins Watched a Man Watch a Man Drown in a Michelob Beer Commercial

Hands down, one of my favorite, if not my ultimate favorite, urban legend has to do with Phil Collins. Specifically his song “In the Air Tonight”.
