The 1980s had some very memorable advertising campaigns: Toyota's "Oh what a feeling!" Pepsi's "Choice of a New Generation," and of course, model, actress, singer Grace Jones shilling Honda scooters. Who could forget, right? I mean, that hair! That flip-up headlight! The shear oddity of the whole damn thing!
Why did I think of this? Well, a co-worker and I were just talking about '80s sci-fi and fantasy movies, when Conan The Destroyer came up (everyone's second favorite Conan movie). If you're a geek like me, you remember this movie. Then you remember that it cast Grace Jones as Zula (I did have to IMDB that one). Well, this made me think of the time when Honda decided to use Jones as a spokeswoman. Why I remember this, I have no idea, but I do.
To this day, it seems like an odd pairing. In fact, it's kind of creepy. Bonus points for one of the top five flat-top hairdos, though.
