And now a word form their sponsor: Frankie Avalon Jr. for Oldsmobile

This is an odd commercial, a 1988 automobile ad featuring Frankie Avalon Junior as well as his dad:

This was part of a series of spots with the offspring of celebrities telling us it's COOL to drive this car now. I tell you, Frankie Avalon Jr.? Seems a little bizarre 30 years later. He was in The Karate Kid and has had a solid career as a drummer (including in his dad's band), and Avalon Prime was having a bit of a renaissance at this time following the success of 1987's Back to the Beach. Still, though, it seems odd.
