Tuesday Throwback: Gap’s Khaki Swing
August 20, 2013 Leave a comment
The Gap is a retailer who used to be huge in the commercial world, but not so much anymore. This very 1998 ad from Gap was a memorable moment in pop culture, solidifying khakis as a common pants selection, and propelling the fad of swing revival. The song is Louis Prima’s original recording of “Jump, Jive, An’ Wail” (later covered by The Brian Setzer Orchestra). And in case you were wondering, the dancers are doing the Lindy Hop.
