The folks over at have put together a brilliant round-up of the Gap's most iconic commercials—and the list kicks off with this, a $15.95 holiday ad from 1981. It's like a whole other Gap, isn't it? Almost like today's Old Navy. Don't miss the Run DMC spot, the Madonna and Missy Elliott ad, and the limited-run Seattle-only Spike Jonze Gap commercial. Amazing.
