The Weekly Links: Anna Kendrick As 'Indianna Jones', New Pac-man Clip From 'Pixels', 1986 Pepsi Ad Inspires Short Story

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! Here's another reminder to enter The Atari 2600 Encyclopedia Volume One giveaway for a free iBooks download! Winner will be drawn last day of the month.

I'll be traveling next week so I probably won't get to post much content on the site or The Weekly Links. I will be sharing stuff on RD80s social media though so make sure you are plugged in (use the convenient Pac-man and ghost icons at the top of the homepage!)

Here are some RD80s headlines from this past week including a couple classic David Letterman memories:
The video that broke the internet this week just happened to be gloriously '80s. Check out a young Vin Diesel and friend showing off some pretty rad breakdance moves. You can now expect him to recreate the video on his next visit to a late night talk show.
