This classic spot for Members Only jackets puts a lot of contemporary fashions into perspective. Things could, after all, always be worse. The Consumerist’s Meghann Marco is repulsed by the Members Only tuxedo look, as anyone who has eyes would be. But I think the pitchman’s Art Garfunkel-esque halfro is more offensive, since it looks different in nearly every frame. Maybe the “something” that happens when he puts on the jacket involves his hairline receding. I think the girl he leaves with has the same problem, only she combed the remaining hair forward. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse than leaving it as is.
