7 Closed Buffalo Businesses That Live on Thanks to YouTube [VIDEO]
What we're going do here is go back – WAY back! Let's take a trip back in time and have some (cheesy) retro nostalgia fun with Buffalo local television spots that "live on" thanks to a fun little place called YouTube. There is some excellent "Wow! I remember THAT commercial!" entertainment here.
Gioia Macaroni Commercial.
We all remember Gioia in Western New York. Here's a VERY old jingle/commercial going back to 1953!
WARNING – Maaaaay be a tad suggestive. You should watch it first then see if you can share it at the office or home. This is a VERY low-budget one; it's so bad it's good.
The Pizza Planet.
Figured I'd show back-to-back pizza commercials here. Let's throw it back to when arcades were much more popular. There is extra cheese on this pizza commercial.
Hayes TV Rental.
Remember "super cable?" Remember when you could get MORE than 13 channels? Remember the 80s?
Ziggy & Zon's
In the same plaza as the now Airport Plaza Jewelers, there was Ziggy & Zon's!
Remember this place? So many malls in Buffalo back in the day! Honorable mentions: Thruway Mall and Summit Park Mall. (I'll look for those commercials soon.)
The Executive Hotel.
Here's another one where hearing the name takes you back! The hotel across from the airport that I believe Club 747 resided inside!
