In a world that seems to get crazier every day, minute by minute... sometimes it's good to take a trip down memory lane and think about what they call: "The good old days."

Down the YouTube rabbit hole

We often find ourselves searching for local happenings to write about and share what's happening in the Treasure Valley. In my usual hunt, I stumbled across a few commercials that aired in the Treasure Valley back in 1987.

Now, I'll admit - I was born in 1987 so for me, this is more of a snapshot of what the landscape of television looked like before I became "aware" in life. That being said, the commercials show us what life was like before the Treasure Valley started booming like it is today.

Let's take a look at some of the commercials from 36 years ago that will certainly tickle that little piece of nostalgia.
