Let’s Revisit Earl Campbell’s “Skoal Brotha’ Commercial From 1980

Everything about this commercial is fantastic.  From then Houston Oilers’ running back Earl Campbell’s hair, to his voice, to him reppin’ a smokeless tobacco while playing for the NFL.  Commercials just don’t exist in this pure of a form anymore, sadly.  Also, there was zero need to put ‘Skoal Brotha’ even in the dialogue, but someone at the agency probably had a few too many and was like ‘screw it, let’s do it anyway.’  5 stars!
