Happy 30th Birthday WrestleMania III!
  |  @   |  

This is the biggest week of the year for wrestling fans as Vince McMahon’s titan of a company, WWE hosts its 33rd annual supershow, WrestleMania from Orlando, Florida. While I know Geeks of Doom doesn’t always cover wrestling; (I’d quit my job and write full time if it did), one cannot deny the crossover appeal of pro wrestling, pop culture, and geek-based entertainment.

As usual with Super Bowl commercials, the ones that have aired during this year’s Big Game have not disappointed, but a standout for sure has to be the Radio Shack one, in which almost every single icon from the 1980s is represented in a quick montage after a Radio Shack store receives a phone call from, as the clerk, puts it, “The 1980s, who said they wanted their store back.”

We won’t spoil the fun of what memorable visuals and icons are in the commercial, but pay close attention, some of them jump out at you and some you have to kind of squint to see them! Check out the commercial here below. (Updated to include also the extended version.)
