Disco-Dancing Patrick Swayze Encourages You To Drink Pabst

It seems this 1979 commercial starring Patrick Swayze (and wife Lisa Niemi?) was designed to scare and confuse future generations. Why is Swayze doing Dirty Dancing moves in the middle of a roller rink? How did the hipsters in the background lose the disaffected sneer? And why does the announcer call Pabst "good" at the end?

Ok, this may be slightly off topic or something, but when did PBR become THE choice of hipsters everywhere? It has always been cheap and plentiful, but now you can't buy a case of PBR without some one asking you if you also like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and god help you if you walk into a bar and order a one dollar PBR while wearing a hoodie. Damn you you ironic bastards!
