From YouTube user ModCinema comes a selection of cheesy American television ads of the 1970s. The selection contains ads for among others Mister Tony’s Submarines, Space Mountain at Disneyland and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

I do not know if I should be nostalgic or laugh. Do anyone of you remember these ads?
