Alaska Airlines made fun of paid airplane bathrooms long before we did

OK, so the whole Ryanair paid bathroom thing was probably just a hoax by the Ryanair CEO, or another of his cheeky ways to create some free publicity for his low cost airline.

But it turns out that we here at Gadling were not the first to make fun of the concept of a paid airplane bathroom – Alaska Airlines beat us to that way back in 1987 with this hilarious vintage commerical.

And is it just me, or does the passenger at 0:06 into this clip look like a young Andy Dick?
