Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott for Rolos

Check out this super rare Rolos commercial featuring Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott! …and that’s what happens when Linz is left to her own devices with video editing software.

The Sony Store Commercials

Commercials for tech stores usually aren’t too entertaining, but The Sony Store really stepped it up in 2000. These two commercials are pretty memorable, but I’ve still never stepped inside a Sony Store. Every time I see a clock blinking 12:00, I can’t help but exclaim: “What time is it at your house, Billy? 12:00! 12:00! 12:00!” There’s a second...

Chris Elliott the Tostitos Pick-Up Artist?

Baked chips of many varieties seemed to pop up everywhere in the 90s. I’m still a fan of Baked Lays and Baked Cheetos. Advertisements boasted these lower-in-fat (as compared to the originals) like they were some kind of health foods. They’re not. But I’ll still eat them. Chris Elliott stars in the above commercial as a Tostitos pick-up artist, trying...

Treasure Trolls

Like most kids growing up in the 90s, I had a fair sized collection of Treasure Trolls. Okay, maybe it was bordering on an obscene amount… While I am the Canadian half of Pop Rewind, I did spend a lot of time in the U.S. as a kid. People growing up in a border city have many of the same...

Bagel Bites: In Case You Wanted to Eat Pizza Anytime

Yo dawg, I heard you like carbs… Bagel Bites seem like such a magical thing in theory. Pizza? On a bagel? How could it go wrong? Well, they end up both soggy and hard as a rock. I jest of course, if I had a box of Bagel Bites in my freezer, I wouldn’t be writing this post right now....

PopRewind Podcast: Pizza Time

Welcome to Season Two of the Pop Rewind Podcast! We’re kicking off the new year with a slightly looser feel. And also a slightly hungrier feel as we delve into the topic of pizza: what we like, how we like it, and why Linz is wrong. Join us as we reminisce about the Pizza Hut Book It Program and learn...

Is Slush Puppie the Original Nyan Cat?

Slurpee, Icee, Slush Puppies. Everyone has their favorite frozen drink. I like ’em all, but Slush Puppie has a special place in my heart. Slurpees, Icees, and other frozen drinks with the flavor already mixed in seem to give you more bang for your buck. But if you can convince the teenager at the rollerskate rink to add an extra...

Mario Paint Commercial Memories

Sometimes jingles really stay with you. Sit back and close your eyes (well, maybe read this first and then close your eyes). Think about jingles… which one pops into your head first? For me, it’s this one for Mario Paint for the Super Nintendo: “Mom and dad, mom and dad. Best darn parents a kid ever had”. I sing this...

Little Caesars’ Wooly Bully Commercial

An interesting thing about Canada: instead of the “Pizza! Pizza!” slogan for Little Caesars, we have “Delivery! Delivery!” or “Quality! Quality!” Canadian pizza chain Pizza Pizza already trademarked the double pizza. And no, they didn’t steal the slogan– Pizza Pizza opened in 1967 while Little Caesar’s campaign wasn’t introduced until 1979. I grew up in a border city in Canada,...

The Backstory: This is a fan-made trailer in the spirit of good fun.  We originally were going to post it as an April Fool’s Day prank, but decided it would be more fun to way until Back to the...
