The people in this ad this ad look and act exactly like the ones who get their comeuppance in college comedy movies.

That was always our go to line between buddies back in the day. The eighties equivalent of today's "Fuck it we'll do it live!"

I long for the days when one would sell books using television commercials. Even crappy books that are more picture than book.

THOSE BOOKS WERE NOT CRAPPY

It's just hilarious that an adult male might be walking around Sedona with one of them in his backpack.

The I think they were the Myths and Legends ones or something? Those were BAD. ASS. I will stomp on the groin of any man who says different. THE GROIN.

These books are still awesome. Some of the "pictures" are fucking paintings by Waterhouse, god damn it.

Xiphias
I fucking loved these damn things.

For real, yo. I spent the better part of 7th grade ignoring class with these things.

I want to see a big pile of these books again, just so I can yell: "I'M AFRAID OF YOU ANYMORE! YOUR POWER OVER MY LIFE ENDS TODAY!"

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
I'm not alone anymore.

Big Muddy
They had the whole set in my high school library of all places!

BOOSH
In the background, the once proud Native American is forced to treat the religious practices of his grandfathers as nothing more than a for profit sideshow for a bunch of white "spiritual, but not religious" types, who place Aboriginal culture on the same cultural and religious plane as the Bermuda Triangle and the X-Files.

SUBTEXT, THOU ART SUBTLE

Oh yeah, and these books WERE awesome, despite what 4 years of liberal arts education has conditioned me to think
Busby Berkeley
Fived, mostly for this comment.

There's a used bookstore in town that has the full set of these for like two bucks each...must resist...

I have two sets of these and another set of "Mysteries of the Unexplained" sitting at home. They were actually really well put together.
FangoftheCobras
I was so scared of the men in black from these books. Wish i still had this fodder...

Last year I re-read all of these, they are still fucking neat!

"What's going on here?"

"An ethnic person is being ethnic. He thinks there's magical wind elves that make grass grow or some bullshit."

"That's fascinating! Who knew ethnic people were so adorable?"

"I did! Thanks to this book, the contents of which I cannot discuss with you, for fear of The Watchers."

"The who?"

"SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I've already said too much."
Unmerciful Crushing Force
So I never got this particular set but five stars for nostalgia over all this mystical crazy crap I was into as a kid.

MY FRIEND'S MYSTIC EXPERIENCES WERE TWICE AS WILD AS THOSE OF YOUR SACRED BRUCE GURNON!

HOW DARE YOU, SIR!

It's all right here in my Sweet Pickles book!!

I also like the sexual tension in this ad. Will there be a threesome??
Big Muddy
I refuse to take credit for this...a "meme", is it?
