😂😂 like a yoyo and they actually use a real yoyoahhhh the things they use to sell us back in the days hahahSo weirdSo weird to think you were allowed to smoke in planes. Imagine being next to a chain smoker on a 10 hour flight lol
Lol i remember that commercial. And it's ironic because i was 10 and when i first heard about AIDS i thought they were talking about this product. I was confused.
Around 1980, news stations around the country flipped out over Herpes: The Epidemic of the 80s!!! This panic seemed rather silly in light of the AIDS epidemic that followed later.
Follow the underground stream...
Have an opinion?
I read about that. It had the name long before the disease. To try to disassociate it, they renamed it to AydsSlims, apparently no realizing that "the Slims" was the name that was used for AIDS in Africa...
Sadly just bad marketing all around
They had the name first, so it was more unfortunate circumstance that Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome became known by it's acronym...
If I could go back to '85, this would be the last thing on my mind. I'd undo some really dumb decisions that really fucked my life up. I'd be curious to see how things turn and and compare. Then again, if there are alternate realities, many possibilities are happening all at once. Any other GAGs experience this?
My mom used to get those. They pretty much disappeared from the marketplace once AIDS was a household word.
Never remembered the commercial but i know we bought themand they tasted just like candy and the name couldn't rememberthat too much. If you tasted them they were like you was eatingcaramel candy not no difference in taste.
I heard they did something to the liver so they was removed from the market.
Ha ha ha yes they didn't choose a good name did they? I wonder if they changed the name and re released it.
This is a perfect question for me to answer. I graduated in 1985. Fact is, I would be cracking up saying to myself, " the bitch got aids she doesn't need to worry about losing weight. her ass will be dead in the next 6 months anyway.
Both kinds do help you to lose weight :) just one works differently than the other :)
It's kinda funny because it's close to AIDS, but if people jokes about that, it only makes more publicity.
That I must get the the clock tower when the clock strikes 12 and go back in time to stop biff from stealing the almanac.
Before the "gay" community cooked up a global pandemic of death in their assholes for us.
Sux to be you. Why are you sticking your penis in gay men's assholes if you are so fearful?
@I_Can_Help You should hope I'm not. Otherwise I'm part of the problem and bringing death and destruction upon you.
You used the word "us" in your statement. It gives me the impression you are living life on the down low.
@I_Can_Help Or the word us refers to humanity in general and your mind says "gay man" for some reasons of it's own.
What comes to mind?"Is it the weekend yet? I want to go over my girlfriend's house and get laid."
What were they thinking? AIDS was first reported in 1981 I see. They were right about one thing though, it does help you lose weight.
AYDS hit the market in the 1970s
@I_Can_Help Oh okay, that makes sense :)
If I traveled back to 1985 my first thoughts would be to invest in Apple and Microsoft.
in 1985 and what was going on, seems like bad naming/marketing
The product came out in the 1970's, way before AIDS was named AIDS.
@I_Can_Help The ad wasn't though, and it's phrasing is very poor
How do we know that commercial is really from 1985? It looks like it could easily be from 1978.
The question says 1985...
True but I have a feeling it's a mistake in the question and on the video.
True. but it's spelt different...
Three words... LOL.
