How did Stride never do an ad with Rowdy Roddy Piper? Remember how they used to market themselves as the “ridiculously long lasting” gum? Remember the following scene?
Stride missed a golden opportunity. Parody.
Imagine a commercial where Rowdy Roddy Piper walks into the bank and says: “I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I’m all out of–” but is interrupted by one of the aliens, who hands him a piece of Stride. Then the alien looks at the camera and says: “Looks like we’ve got some time.”
