This 1984 television ad for coffee is hilarious. It’s not for any particular brand of coffee, just for the coffee industry in general. I like how the marketing isn’t about taste, but about how drinking coffee can make you achieve like David Bowie, Kurt Vonnegut, and Kenny Anderson. The coffee world has come a long way since then.
My favorite moment is the slight wince on Cicely Tyson’s face as she takes a sip of the stuff during rehearsal. It’s so bad she has to slap her director in the face. Now that’s motivation!
