God damn, sorry again, didn't mean to hijack the one in the hopper.
John Holmes Motherfucker
The great thing about the one in the hopper, it "warns" you where the titties can be found, so you can "avoid" them.

Also at 30:06 and then 38:30, much more gratuitously there in that it's a carpet ad.

So that's why the call you the RACKeteer.

I don't have time to watch this right now, but are you telling me that SOVIET RUSSIA had titties in their commercials? The evil empire was cooler with that than modern-day America?
John Holmes Motherfucker
Oh, they're real. And they're magnificent!

Old_Zircon
All of Europe has been cooler with that than modern day America since before I was born. Also parts of Canada.

As I was pretty much aware, Mr. Zicron, since I grew up with the magic that was the Brazilian satellite channel. But the USSR? Really?

The Mothership
USSR consistently clowned the USA for being all uptight and not socially liberated, and for good reason, women could vote there before they could vote in the USA. They one-upped us on women's lib by two years, so titties on T.V. is just one more way they say we're cooler than you.

State capitalism week?

My personal highlights:
Juice by the jar, the rolling "r"s, what the movie Platoon was about, Vangelis at 38:something and hula woman.

Felt a bit mesmerized by all the 80s hair. It should make a come back.

I don't get out much lately.

...oh and creepy slide projector guy.

You can find that exact same guy in most hipster bars except that his sides are all of Instragram pictures.

Estonia sure had some sexy garment workers.
Can someone more knowledgeable than me explain why a communist country needed product advertising?
Born in the RSR
Most manufacturing plants were owned by the state but was managed as a co-op. Each co-op was a unique, had it's own logo and more or less unique way of doing things. They would advertise because... why not? Just for the fun of it.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Because they had products. You're manufacturing the stuff, you want people to know they're available, right? Otherwise, you've just got warehouses full of shit.

Before the internet, i grew up believing that America was the best place ever, and life everywhere else was significantly different. I now know that's far less true than i once believed it to be.

MrBuddy
They weren't necessarily advertising products, in some cases they were advertising trade unions. You see that in the US from time to time as well.

I don't really know and I'm taking a wild guess but I think it's the, "If you can read this thank a teacher" type of thing.

A beer that's tagline is 'there's no accounting for taste'. Magical.

Oh I love these commercials so much. I first saw a few of them on Boing Boing almost a decade ago, but I've never seen this many. Thank you.

The 80s: a brief but universal phenomenon.
The Mothership
so I've learned that there are only like three models in all of Estonia, Estonian women love to dance and bathe and do gymnastics, Estonians love candy and deep fried meats, and carpet companies have the best ads. and I'm only 17 minutes in.

That ice cream commercial at 1:35 was used in Borat.
sosage
That was an ice cream commercial?

Thoooousands of years ago... in an ancient time... known as... THE EIGHTIES...!
