    Opus Archives: Disneyland "California Sun" Commercial

    From approx 1987, comes one of my favorite "nationwide" Disneyland television commercials produced by Disney that sold not only Disneyland, but Southern California as a vacation destination as well. It features a revised lyrics version of the Ramones' classic hit "California Sun."

    And check out that state-of-the-art computer animation!

    Nice Video, not to get picky but California Sun was covered by the Ramones, original hit was in 1964 by the Rivieras.

    I remember that commercial!

    And good point -- this is certainly some marketing that Disney can use right about now. To advertise to the coastal tourists that Disneyland could be a part of that vacation as well.

    Thanks, that was great to watch. The computer graphics were way ahead of their time, they were almost as good as the computer graphics in Space Chimps.
