In The 1960s IHOP Pretty Much Accepted That Most Of Their Clientele Was Tripping

An incredibly fucked up commercial for International House of Pancakes from 1969.

Sometimes I tell people that the closest audio approximation to an acid trip is the Butthole Surfer's Locust Abortion Technician. Now I can add this completely fucked up IHOP commercial to the list. This thing is just drenched in acid, from the bizarre music to the incredible visuals (that bit where the waitress serves coffee and the fisheye lens fucks with your depth perception almost gave me flashbacks). The late 1960s were a really unique time in American culture.
