Selling the New American Dream

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the 90’s are now two decades removed. But then again, at other times those Clinton boom years feel like a lifetime ago.

In the spirit of those days and all their triple-digit returns, low-hanging fruit, dot com dreams, and day-trading fervor, I offer up these two fabulous TV commercials — two of the greatest spots of that era — each one hilarious, and each in its own way promising the Average Joe his own little chunk of that big rock candy mountain.
