If you’ve seen Funny Or Die Presents Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie, you know that the 1988 made-for-TV movie Donald Trump wrote, directed, and starred in never actually aired. Instead, after being pre-empted for Monday Night Football, a furious Trump pulled the movie before it was ever seen by anyone. Until now, of course.
Had the movie actually made it to air, Trump insisted that it only be interrupted by the most important, most huge, most long-lasting and memorable commercials of the time. Below are 15 such commercials: the perfect time capsule to remind your brain of an era long-since-passed, but fondly remembered.
