Ads & Clips (extra on Drive-In Discs, Vol. 1 (Elite Entertainment, 2000)). [Category: Commercial]

This is the first collection of drive-in snack bar promos on DVD I've seen. Since it's an extra, it's not a very big collection, but they do choose some classics, such as Let's Go Out to the Lobby and the Chilly Dilly ad. And all the promos are letterboxed, menu-driven, and have stunning film quality. Let's hope more snack bar promos end up on DVD in the future.


  • The counter they include is easily my favorite. It features an endless array
    of dancing snacks, with a thoroughly evil scene of a hot dog bun making
    the hot dog do tricks. No commentary is necessary on that one.
  • The National Anthem includes captions so we can all sing along!

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
