I've never even heard of Shakey's but four stars for the pure 70s that was this 80s commercial.

I'm not understanding the guy in the hoodie, or the dice earrings. But I liked both. Sometimes you just need to see some stuff that makes zero sense that's presented with 100% sincerity.

Well, this was before the Unibomber ruined hoodies for everybody. You're probably too young to remember, but back then wearing a hoodie with the hood up was a non-verbal sign that you were having just a great time.

I was sober for much of the 90s. You can't trick me into thinking that hoodies on adults were normal then.

I also call bullshit.

yeah, now they are all Starbucks

Leave it up to an 80s commercial to think showing a close up of a mouth looks appealing to customers.

What happened to Shakey's? Bad management? Tax dodging?

Two franchisees bought the chain in 1984 and they sold out to Inno-Pacific Holdings of Singapore in 1989. Most of the U. S. stores closed during the time Inno-Pacific owned the chain. Some of the remaining franchisees took Inno-Pacific to court in 2003. Before this could come to trial, Shakey's was sold to Jacmar Companies of Alhambra, California, in 2004. So now every remaining Shakey's is in California, with one in Seattle and Arizona.

DerangedGoblin - 2009-08-01

I beg your pardon sir, but there is one in Alabama as well.

It is also alive and well in Japan although it is rather different there, from what I understand.

(I have only eaten at Shakey's in Japan and never in America.)

I thought this place was made up so that Cartman could clone it with stem cells.

Nope, not at all. Trey & Matt did make up Whistlin' Pete's Pizza Party Boat after all the Shakey's closed in Colorado. Even the South Park boys miss Shakey's, with Kyle declaring "I wish we still had a Shakey's!" after Whistlin' Pete annoys the hell out of them in one ep. Shakey's is alive and well and thriving in California state, tho.

This commercial has the stench of the 50's on it.
