Patrick Swayze's 1979 PBR Ad, Like You've Never Seen It Before An old classic in wonderful HD quality

Here's a really wonderful old Pabst Blue Ribbon commercial from 1979, featuring the late Patrick Swayze, then in his late 20s, hitting the dance floor with a pretty young thing—then cooling off with a crisp, cold glass of PBR.

The spot itself is great—but the quality of the video is unbelievable. It was posted by Big Sky Edit, which explains: "This film was recently found in our archives and re-transferred to HD quality." The results are astonishing, and really make the ad come alive again.
