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.)
