Who wants to go roller skating? If this was the late 70s / early 80s, I wouldn’t even have to ask. I’d just assume you loved to roller skate, because America had Skate Fever. This was in addition to Pac-Man Fever and Disco Fever – it was a deadly era. Here are 7 funny roller skating ads from the 80s:
