    Easily, the dumbest sneaker commercials ever produced, starring Paula Abdul Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Kathy Ireland.

    2. As was a young Jennifer Love Hewitt.

    3. Paula Abdul was not blameless.

    4. SCRUNCHIE SOCKS (*shudder*).

    5. Remember these two nimrods?

    6. They were late 1980s — early 1990s icons.

    7. It was all downhill once you left the Go-Gos, sweetheart.
