Superbowl Commercial Week: Watch Young Michael J. Fox’s Storm-Soaked Search for Diet Pepsi


As we gear up for Superbowl Sunday, we’ll be taking a look back at some of our favorite food memories from years past. Today, watch an Alex P. Keaton-era Fox fight off pouring rain, locked windows, and a leather-clad motorcycle gang so he can grab a Diet Pepsi for his sexy new neighbor.

The ad, which ran during the Giants/Broncos Superbowl in 1987, was one of the first to feature Fox, a longtime spokesman for the soda throughout the late 80s and early 90s. Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, however, Fox has spoken out regarding the link between artificial sweeteners and his illness.

The electro-heavy music and Fox’s famous bob-and-weave moves make this old favorite a true classic.
