Here's to Zack, he's the Mack

Anybody remember Zack the LEGO maniac? It was one of the defining commercials of the 1980's for me.

It featured Zach, who had a seemingly endless number of LEGO bricks and a catchy rap that was perhaps only trumped by McDonald's "all beef patties," song (I can't believe McDonald's once sent out a promotion on a record. And that record was in your Sunday newspaper. Going back in time just makes you feel old).

"He loves to fit, he loves to stack, yes construction is his knack." They don't make rhymes like that any more.

I loved that rap. Zack was my hero as a kid. I aspired to have his endless LEGO collection.
