Celebrating Every '80s Reference in That RadioShack Super Bowl Commercial

02/02/2014 at 10:25 PM EST



The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past).

At only 60 seconds, the ad was an overload of nostalgic randomness; here's a breakdown of every '80s reference we spotted, in roughly the order of appearance:
