Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Xavier's is Totally Rad!

In the early 1980s, there was only one place where teenagers could learn how to shoot lasers out of their eyes and program Apple IIes — Professor Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters! This retro ad for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t feel entirely legit — I don’t remember kids who weren’t skaters saying “rad” back in 1983 — but it does a pretty good job of recreating the cheesy commercials of the era.

Oh and apparently if you dial the toll-free number at the end, you get a voicemail from Stan Lee. Excellent! — I mean, Excelsior!
