Classic Commercials - Trump Castle Hotel and Casino

As I get older, a casino to me becomes less about gambling and more and more about just getting away to a place where you can forget about the daily rigors of life for a little while.  So its ironic that there's a commercial I remember from the 1980's that is trying to give me exactly what I'm looking for now.  Folks, I give you this classic ad for Donald Trump's Atlantic City Hotel.

0:00 - YES!  I love the fake British accented woman talking over a horse and carriage pulling up to a casino.  EVERYONE is treated like a King...just like they were in the 8th century!

0:05 - There are hooks and then there are HOOKS.  "You're the kiiiiiiing, you're the king of the caaa-sillllll!".

0:08 - The logo of Trump's casino is right out of an episode of Knight Rider.

0:10 - Some quick hits here.  Love the long shot...are those tennis courts next to the hotel?  Love the guy in a classic tuxedo.

0:13 - What kind of show is this? Love the guys in white with their leg kicks.

0:16 - There she is...I hope she got major royalties for this commercial.  If there was a system where someone makes a few cents every time someone sings this song to themselves (like I have many times), this lady would not being performing in the casino, she would be owning a casino.

0:19 - HOLY SH*T...Free indoor parking! Love how it blinks too.

0:23 - Our friendly King from the Rennaisance agrees that this is truly a castle.

0:27 - Nice! They have slutty waitresses there...you're damn right I'm the King sweet cheeks.

Oddly enough, this hotel and casino are still there but have been completely dwarfed by other hotels that have been built in the past 10 years.
