I like how the commercial features clips from MLB, NCAA Football, and Disney. This commercial would cost approximately $57 million to make today.

Also, LOU BROCK!!!

Steve Garvey's rider for his trailer at the commercial shoot: 7 Up, Budweiser, baked macaroni and cheese, and 7 extremely fertile 25-year old women.

Steve Garvey got the SegaVision gig because of his brother, Heady Metal.

I have never heard this before, but it is clear that one of the overlayed image, and not in the current TV Because it is probably too weak to Appear in the camera! as far as I know from the article found by http://www.mp3hunting.com SE, Service Games and Sega have already been around since the 60’s years, if not sooner, before video games were mechanical Slot game. I almost cry when I watch this commercial!) so cute) unbelievable but even in those times different trademarks were eager to get stars to promote their goods. no wonder! Steve Garvey was really popular at that time.
