Did your family ever take you to see The Ice Capades when you were a kid? Well, if you were a kid and/or exhibition skating fan in 1968, this commercial, shot in Los Angeles, may have scared the crap out of you instead of compelled you to take in an ice show.

It's entirely possible Satan himself was cast as the voice over actor in this very creepy ad. If you cry out for mommy while watching this, that's okay.

By the way, did anyone else get to see "Hey Kids, Meet The Snorks!" in 1985? Now that was a show!
