* In a SuperBowl commercial, Radio Shack goes the Domino's Pizza route of SelfDeprecation with "TheEighties Called. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUwwZHdx6SU They Want Their Store Back.]]" In TheStinger, [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} Slimer]] appears in the newly remodeled store, and is dejected when he finds out [[YouAreTooLate he's too late]].
** This one got an added level of Meta pretty quickly. By the next superbowl the company was in such dire straights, partly from spending millions to run this commercial during the SuperBowl, that they had to close thousands of stores in an attempt to prevent total collapse after filing for bankruptcy with the remainder being converted to Sprint stores. ''The 80's actually took it back with them'', and now it's gone.
