Laugh all you want but that's how 5% of the nation did it.

Speaking of the 80s, this was taken around '86 or so in my mom's garage. Weirdly enough I'm still good friends with all the males in this picture.

She should have been using a keytar, Nothin sexier than heels, shoulder pads and a keytar

Picture of me and my bandmates. We had a punk band in the 80s called "Only You Can Prevent Insanity".

I still have that Casio SK-1. I've got about a dozen different Casiotone keyboards (including the one that's in this commercial). I freaking love Casio keyboards. Such velvety cheesy goodness.

I'd say the sounds definitely come from the keyboard, but they've multi-tracked it and the filter sweeps are done with outboard effects.

Yep.  I have a confession...when I wrote "pieces of shiat", that doesn't necessarily mean that I wouldn't have given my left nut to have one (or two or however many they made).  I remember the commercial, and I remember thinking I would have been the coolest motherfarker on the block if I had the keyboard (at least).

But I spent my graduation money on a car stereo instead.
