TPIR 1980 - A $49 Trip to Las Vegas?

Here is a hilarious clip from 1980, in which a contestant really has no idea how much a trip to Las Vegas is!

If Orbitz or another trip website was around back then, perhaps we'd see a $49 trip to Vegas.

Daytime show. The GSN logo was in the corner of the clip. The first pricing game that day was CLock Game, he'd have given some interesting bids there if he'd gotten up on stage to play it.
