90's Commercial for Jeans. Little Help?

Postby Christo » Sat Dec 27, 2014 3:34 pm UTC

Anyone remember the ad campaign for jeans that involved made up scientific names for the various sub-cultures? I think it was Levi's, and I think it was the early 90's. But they had silly names like "Skatus Maximus" or "Chopus Condropus." I had a bunch of posters that my mom threw away, and I'd love to find the images or the ads on youtube. Does anyone remember any more details in order for me to refine my search?

YES! Where did you find that? How can I get a higher resolution image?

I'm pretty sure the singularity has already happened, and it's name is Deva.

Reverse image search with Deva's image gives this page with the individual posters:

Focused on commercials first. Proved fruitless. Switched to posters. Worked. Forgot the exact search. Appears fourth with Levis Poster Maximus -Tangled. May or may not have included "90s", "Skateboard", or "Minimus". Returns larger, individual versions too (likely from Angua's link).
