Attention fellow oldsters: EVERYTHING YOU LOVED AND THOUGHT EVEN VAGUELY “COOL” IN YOUR YOUTH IS NOW SO MUCH SULLIED TRASH ON THE SCRAP HEAP OF HISTORY. Want proof?

And so now here’s the Billy Corgan of today, making local commercials for Walter E. Smithe, the Nathan Huffhines of the greater Chicago metro area. Corgan is apparently a big fan of wrestling, having tried to follow in the footsteps of Vince McMahon by launching his own wrestling federation, Resistance Pro Wrestling. And what better place to promote one’s own wrestling federation than a furniture ad, right? Watch the results below.
If you need me, I’ll be in the corner, weeping over the grunge arena-rock revival of the 90′s, which is surely dead at last.
