Video: Weird IHOP Commercial (1969)

Happy family members running across a field with giant clusters of colorful balloons in slow motion. A voiceover that sounds like a chipmunk. A jingle that simultaneously sounds upbeat and languid. Food that looks so unappetizing you can barely tell what it is. If these things appeal to you, you must've been IHOP's target audience in 1969. If they don't, you're probably sane. Watch the video after the jump.
