Sea Monkeys and Ball Busters

leave a comment »

WFMU has posted some great retro ads. This first one for Sea Monkeys is like a deleted scene from 2001. A monkey puts together a sea monkey kit while “INSTANT LIFE” flashes on the screen. Even the name of the company, Transcience Corp, sounds like an evil scientist front company.

This 1970s game called Ball Busters is “as easy as checkers but exacting like pool”. Ok, yeah…that’s not really the comparison I came up with watching this ad. It closes with the husband telling his wife “you’re a ball buster”. The whole thing plays out like it should be in the Kentucky Fried Movie.
