Fresh Visa Commercials

Anyone remember those old Visa commercials where they described a cool place that only took Visa? This blog was thinking of those recently, and much to it's dismay, this site was unable to find an example out there showing these. This is somewhat unfortunate, but hopefully these parodies at least can communicate the essence of the originals (although it helps to have the guy's voice that always did those).

"708 Breese Terrace in Madison is home to some of the wildest Frat parties this side of Lambda Lambda Lambda. Featuring 2 kegs in back, 3 on the deck, and standing room only in the living room; 708 can satisfy hundreds of partygoers' thirst for Milwaukee's Best. Costing a cool Five Dollars for entry, cups are free, the Breese Terrace landmark has hosted such celebrities as Tom Wopat, Scott Van Pelt, and Kirk Herbstreit. Guests can always expect a well pumped tap, neon light decor, and a pyramid of Pabst cans by the fridge. So leave your tastebuds at home, but bring your Visa Card. Because at 708 Breese Terrace, they may have to rally their roommate at 8:00 PM, but they don't take...American Express."

"Raul's Bodega is one of the finest purveyors of cannabis you will ever find. Just off the beaten path in Spanish Harlem, Raul's may not stand out, but it definitely helps its customers smoke out. If you're looking for Maui Wauwie, Acapulco Red, or Zacatecas Purple, they've got you covered. Though operating under the pretenses of a legitimate market, patrons realize this shop hasn't sold a canned good since the Reagan administration. But business is still blazing because of their 'special' products, if you know what they mean. So if you want to be part of one of the biggest growth industries in the black market, be sure to bring your lighter and your Visa Card, because at Raul's Bodega, they don't take...American Express."

This blog isn't quite sure why these type of commercials aren't around, but it'd definitely be a cool pair of commercials to see hurtling across Pun City's TV screen.

I think you posted the wrong picture. The first picture isn't Raul's Bodega. I'm pretty sure that it is a photo of Hidalgo's Hideaway.

Uh, dude, I think you're talking about Hernando's Hideaway. Since you're obviously unclear on your hispanic destinations, I'm going to have to say that picture's Raul's Bodega for sure.
