Classic ad – Ride into adventure with Evel Knievel!

Love that his name is trademarked in this ad…

EVEL ad

I remember beating the hell out this Evel action figure when I was a kid – I think I abused my plastic Evel more than Evel himself… Err, abused himself. Doing stunts, I mean.

When the toy was reissued in the 90s I got another one. My oldest son played with it, but because he didn’t have the “Howard Cosell announces a crazy-ass Evel Knievel stunt on Wide World of Sports” context I had, he didn’t enjoy it as much.
