We have no idea if the unstoppable, invincible, invulnerable, fantastic Argoman is a superhero, a supervillain, or just some jerk in a tight-fitting outfit, but thankfully Netflix has it on DVD, and we’re adding it to the top of our queue right now.
Keep your eye on Dave Wottle, the guy at the back of the pack in this footage from the 1972 Olympic 800-meter event. If you look up “sandbagger” in the encyclopedia, they should have a picture of this guy.
Delta’s flight safety video goes back to the 80s, loading its plane with pop culture icons from the decade of big hair and bad sunglasses. It’s not as silly as it could be, as it actually has to convey safety info. Bonus points for the last 10 seconds.
(NSFW: Language) It seems like today’s local car commercials are all about how you can buy a car regardless of credit. But this 1960s TV spot features a salesman who’s mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore.

If The Hunger Games were The Hunger Video Games, we hope it would look and play like this. We only wish that it had a train level with a drunk Woody Harrelson and a TV studio with Stanley Tucci in a powdered wig.

For his latest Clueless Gamer episode, Conan O’Brien puts away the Xbox 360 and PS3 and dusts off an old Atari 2600. We have to agree that most of these “classics” really don’t stand the test of time. Nintendo, on the other hand…
We were just getting into the retro grooves and the kid’s mad dance moves, when his backwards-ballcap-wearing, beer-swilling dad barges into his room and steals the show like candy from a baby. America’s got talent, indeed.

One could argue that Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories sounds like it was recorded back in 1978, so it’s ironic that Joe Jeremiah’s chiptune version actually modernizes the album with its 1980s sounds. Best watched in 144p.
A tribute to both Brooklyn and bagels, this 16mm film was shot back in 1979 and is both a cool bit of nostalgia and good for a chuckle as we listen to its passionate narrator. What else is there in life? Hot bagels that taste beautifully!
