Try to remember the kind of dismember

Does anyone remember a Twix commercial from, perhaps, the early to mid-'80s, featuring a group of teen archetypes sitting around 'hanging out', as teens are wont to do in commercials, and at the end, this preppy guy says:

"I'm gonna go to college and major in TWIX!"

And everybody laughs, just as if he's said something funny?

If you remember this, or better yet if you are some kind of Googling genius and can cough up some references to it online, I will be forever in your debt and will buy you liquor. It's in aid of an idea for a piece about projects that were obviously lame and awful from their very conception but got done anyway. You're the best.
