Image: 1990 Advertisement, Drug Mart feat Bea Arthur

I’ve always enjoyed the healthy dose of nostalgia which accompanies old advertisements. This is doubly so when any of them are car-related. The style, the jingles, pricing, long-dead nameplates – it’s all there. And through an accidental YouTube discovery, hundreds are in a single location.

YouTube user Betamax King has collected and uploaded a playlist of 200 automotive ads from the 1990s. The list starts off with Bea Arthur during her Golden Girls years, driving a Ford Escort through a drugstore. Surely many more treasures await within this playlist, so get to watching.
