    Plaid Stallions Star Trek Pajama promotion



    The idea of promoting "Star Trek The Motion Picture" with pajamas is kind of loaded, the film almost put me to sleep as a kid and the crew looked like they were all in their pajamas, so it's a bit of a comedy goldmine.

    Thanks to my friend Corey, we get an amazing glimpse at this long forgotten promotion from Mars.






    The offer was advertised on "fun sized" bags of candy bars, a rarity in my household as a kid so this never hit my radar.



    $4.50 seems like a lot, I wonder how successful this promotion was.



    You had your choice of Spock or Enterprise, William Shatner could be heard sobbing.



    Here are the PJ's you got, note the classic TV depiction of the characters with the movie logo.



    Say what you will about the motion picture, it had some sweet art.



    Many thanks to Corey for sharing this little bit of "Trek history".

    I have the long sleeve version of the Spock Jammies. When I was thinner, I could wear the top.

    Those are wonderful products.

    Maybe this is why Star Trek: The Next Generation Starfleet uniforms are sometimes mistaken for pajamas!

    Fantastic. These are new to me, which is a wonderful surprise.

    Interesting they did solo Spock, but no Kirk.

    Appropriate you could get pajamas as a tie in for ST: The Motion Picture. The actors wore them in the movie and you weren't getting out of the theater without sleeping.
