"One for the Road:" Marshall Field's Christmas (Again)

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Dec 19, 2011 11:10PM

Christmas is the time of year wher, among other things, Chicagoans remind themselves to say "Fuck Macy's." Courtesy of Rick Klein at the Museum of Classic Chicago Television, here's some kindling for that hatred. Here's a commercial from 1980 that shows, regardless of the name on the building, that department store sold a lot of stuff we wouldn't want to buy in the first place. No Pierre Cardin for us, por favor.
