Awful Classics: Keith Olbermann’s Boston Market commercial from the ’90s

We've given Boston Market plenty of attention lately due to the bizarre Kellen Winslow Jr. story and the company's incredible response. Now is as good a time as ever to look through the advertising archives and unearth an old Boston Market classic. 

This ad from 1997 features Keith Olbermann in a spot which spoofs the Calvin Klein commercials which were extremely popular at the time.

They certainly nailed the look and feel of a '90s Calvin Klein ad, but it's kind of weird seeing Olbermann pitch the restaurant chain. Maybe it's just us, but the entire ad has some nightmare qualities to it with the odd mix of color and Olbermann suddenly appearing in the frame. Nightmare fuel.
