A Cringeworthy, Catastrophic Crimping Commercial

Talk about uncovering repressed memories. While browsing YouTube yesterday, I came across this all-too-familiar commercial. So maybe the '80s really are back.

I'm embarrassed to admit that not only did I see this ad as a kid and think, "Wow! That looks so cool!" — I shamelessly cajoled my parents into buying it for my birthday present. Then, when the pink prize was in my hands, I crimped everything in sight. (The cat was lucky to escape my fervent crimping campaign; Barbie, alas, was not so lucky, and her hair melted quickly.)

So if this brings back some awkward memories, it's not meant to shame you. Instead, think of this ad as a chance to put them to rest for good.
