Saturday Morning Ringside: Remember when Dusty Rhodes shilled for Mello Yello? (1988)

In memory of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, who passed away today at 69, we present an ad for Mello Yello, Coke's answer to Mountain Dew, from 1988. Dusty was asked to be a paid endorser for the soft drink.

You doubtlessly had seen this ad during NWA/WCW programming around that time Saturday mornings and evenings and Sunday afternoons on TBS or in syndication, eef yew weel. Rest in peace, Dusty. Heaven's opened the ultimate pay winda for you.
