This commercial is ok. I understand why people think it's great but I've seen better. How did a kid get past security? Why didn't anybody stop him?

This was 1980.

Security was not that tight in most places, and kids were encouraged to get closer to the players. If you review the ad, you'll see a lot of people in the entrance to that ramp.

Nowadays, people would be arresting the kid's parents for allowing him to wander alone in the stadium. It's dangerous out there!
