Awesome, Retro, Vintage D&D

This is absolutely fantastic!  It’s an early 80’s ad for D&D featuring some nerds in epic 80’s garb, a really weak dragon, and a cartoon version of Dudley Moore sniffing out treasure at the end.  It’s not really Dudley Moore, but that’s what my brain said when he showed up.  Also, I love the “part of a balanced breakfast” style money shot at the end of the commercial with all the dice nicely spaced out to display their dicely goodness.  All of this thanks to Boing Boing!

Also, their group was comprised of three guys, two girls… a pretty good ratio for a D&D game!
