Who wants to go roller skating? If this was the late 70s / early 80s, I wouldn’t even have to ask. I’d just assume you loved to roller skate, because America had Skate Fever. This was in addition to Pac-Man Fever and Disco Fever – it was a deadly era. Here are 7 funny roller skating ads from the 80s:


Screamin’ Wheels Roller Rink

Can they see me this weekend? In 1981? Yes!


Sergio Valente – “At The Roller Rink”

How do you sell pants to teens? A: Roller rinks and butts.


Faberge Babe

All the babes in town? That’s quite a promise, Faberge.


Martini with Nicolette Sheridan

Best reaction shot ever at :58 seconds.


Diet 7up with Flip Wilson

It’s weird that these two actors look so similar. I wonder why that is…



That’s no slow-motion – these shirts increase wind resistance, allowing for better control.


Opel A-Corsa

Opel A-Corsa: We Will Turn You Into a Car


Bonus: “Say NO to Crack, Say YES to Roller Skating”

No meth, cause skating is the beth. (Best.)


Bonus 2: Baby Rollerblade

This baby is ready to conquer Venice Beach.
