Mustard Minute Throwback Thursday: 1985 Larry Bird car commercial
Thursday November 12th, 2015

Throwback Thursday is upon us and the Mustard Minute was inspired by Kristaps Porzingis’s almost heroics from long range to find a classic car commercial starring another lanky three-point bomber.

Larry Bird does a heck of a job selling the luxurious 1985 Escort in this car commercial, complete with options like power disk brakes and an AM/FM stereo.

The 6'9" Bird admits he had some skepticism about being able to fit in the compact car, but we can all agree that based on the smile on his face at the end of the commercial that the Escort is a perfect fit for Larry Legend.
