This is a short one. I already did a rather extensive piece on the 1980s game show Sale of the Century (1983-1989) - and if you are fans of tan, blonde (or even dark, pale) hunks in Speedos, I suggest you check out that post! I continue to watch the show in reruns, marveling at its intense tackiness, but one recent Instant Bargain vignette was too amusing to let go without highlighting.
As the music played and "Leia" was striking all sorts of dramatic, chiffon-laden poses and "C-3PO" was "doing the robot," the little blue & white ripoff proceeded to drive right off the steps of the tiny set! The gal portraying Leia couldn't stifle her laughter at the sight of this little guy toppling over onto the ground of the sound stage and had to turn away.
