Skatebikes Are Better Than Typhoid.
Somehow I missed the boat on this thing when I was a kid. I've never seen this contraption, and concede that I am probably better off. What's best about this commercial is that all the cool bad kids are on the skate bikes being chased by lame policemen on skateboards. The message was clear. Skateboards were officially about to be lame. This message somehow becomes cloudy when a 'close enough' Michael Jackson enters the scene and hops on a skatebike, too, making a fast get away from a tough crowd of ladies. (EWWWW!! GIRLLLS!!!) I wonder if the skatebike people were trying to get the real Michael, but couldn't afford it because they spend their whole budget on something dumb? Like making skatebikes, maybe?
