Video: Space-themed 1979 health club commercial voiced by Ken Nordine
by Josh Kimball
Allow me to describe for you this particular flavor of awesomeness:
It is 1979. You are sitting on your sofa in Chiago, Illinois. You are viewing a television commercial for Chicago Health Clubs. Chicago Health Clubs has decided to have the inimitable KEN NORDINE do the voiceovers for their commercials.
Furthermore, they’ve opted to go with a futuristic space theme in hawking their services. FURTHERMORE, exercisers wear silver “space-like” suits WITH CAPES.
Furthermore: KEN FUCKING NORDINE.
(Furthermore, some sort of Millennium Falcon knock-off model thing in the opening shot.)
