Classic Clip Monday: Instant Classic

It's only 12 hours old, but as far as we're concerned, this Super Bowl Snickers commercial from last night's game is a soon-to-be classic -- perfect for Classic Clip Monday:

TV icons from the '70s and '80s (who are both actually IN their late 80s) Betty White and Abe Vigoda getting tackled? Awesome and nutty, much like a Snickers.

The Super Bowl was crawling with ads nodding to Generation X memories, including the Boost Mobile spot that payed tribute to 1985's Super Bowl Shuffle (complete with Mike Ditka, and Jim McMahon on a scooter), an ode to 1983's "Vacation" (good to see you, Family Truckster!) and KISS hawking Dr Pepper Cherry.

Hey, remember the '80s? Madison Avenue definitely does.
