Super Bowl Commercials: Loverboy and Dee Snider Lead ’80s Riot in Radio Shack Ad

Loverboy‘s ‘Working for the Weekend‘ and Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider are among the ’80s stars leading an attack on a Radio Shack store in a new Super Bowl commercial.

The fun starts when a sales associate at an average-looking Radio Shack location gets a phone call from the ’80s — that’s right, the decade itself is making the phone call — stating that it’s about to take their beloved store back by force. Sure enough, a parade of ’80s stars including Alf, Cliff from ‘Cheers,’ the California Raisins and Kid n’ Play are soon gleefully tearing the store apart to the strains of Loverboy’s 1981 weekend anthem. Nobody seems to be doing more damage or having more fun than Snider, decked out in his famous pink and black outfit from videos like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It.’

What does it all mean? We have no idea. But hopefully it temporarily took Broncos’ fans minds off of the beating their team is currently receiving in this (so far) extremely one-sided game.
