Here’s a fun retro blast from the bast Showcase segment from the Price is Right that aired on January 16, 1978. The game show featured a hilarious parody of Star Wars while presenting the items that the contestants needed to bid on. The segment included a yellow garbage disposal as a robot and lava lamps for lightsabers.
The Staff of the Price Is Right wanted to do a Star Wars Showcase but lacking the budget for rocketships, robots, and lightsabers, we had no alternative but to substitute our prizes for the fancy hardware. So, in other words, we’re using the prizes in your showcase to play the part of all that good stuff.
Enjoy the video!
