If this throwback ad doesn’t just reek of the 1980s (video)

With Alfonso’s Breakin’ & Poppin’ book you too can be the next teen Michael Jackson!

I don’t remember this product from the 80s, then again I probably wasn’t the target audience at age 20.

This is a hoot, and just reeks of the early 80s.  I love Alfsono Ribeiro’s cool-suave “hi,” mixed with his Michael Jackson look-alike outfit:

I especially like the two kids in the screen shot that I grabbed, who look like Spock in the Star Trek movie, The Voyage Home, where they go to save the whales:

And fret not, the product is for kids of all ages!
