Remember that time Kareem Abdul-Jabbar got Larry Bird to binge on Lay's potato chips and shave his head?

It's time for another one of my favorite commercials from the 90's. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar bets Larry Bird that he can't eat just one, single Lay's potato chip. And these weren't just any old Lay's. These were "New Lay's", i.e., they were likely fried in some kind of delicious trans fat.

I'm not sure what Larry really had to gain from this wager since we're never told what Kareem would have to do if he just ate one chip. But Larry' just ended up bloated from eating an entire bag of chips and looked like a crash test dummy after shaving his head.
