Before They Were Stars: Patrick Swayze in a Pabst Blue Ribbon Commercial

If you’re like me, you can’t hear the words “Pabst Blue Ribbon” without visualizing Dennis Hopper shouting those words in Blue Velvet, preceded by “Heineken?! FUCK THAT SHIT!”. However, now you can associate Pabst Blue Ribbon with a young, disco-dancing Patrick Swayze who appeared in this ad for the beer back in 1979. Man, I must say, this is probably the best quality I’ve ever seen for a vintage commercial on Youtube. Even though this footage is over 30 years old, it looks like it was shot yesterday!
