What's better than a $2 hair cut? How about this magnum opus of a local commercial for Salt Lake Community College's Barbering and Cosmetology School.
The video has it all: a mellifluous little jingle, creepy mannequin heads, vintage video transitions. It's a veritable trifecta of bad taste, absurdity and guilty pleasure.
Sure, it's also probably an intentional bid at irony. Posted in 2009, those awesome swipe effects weren't any less outdated four years ago than they are now. And there's the Mormon missionary theme: awesome but seemingly a wink at us viewers. So, this is to local commercials what a Quentin Tarantino film is to classic exploitation cinema.
