The steamy campaign artwork flashes back to one of the most iconic scenes from Dallas history — and one of the silliest moments in TV history — when, in a May 1986 cliffhanger episode, Pam (Victoria Principal) awakens one morning to find her supposedly dead husband Bobby (Patrick Duffy, who returns in the new series) alive and well in the shower. When Dallas returned that fall, it was revealed that Bobby had never died, and that the events of the entire 1985-86 season were all a dream of Pam’s.

It’s a fun ad. Let’s just hope the new series plays a little more fair with its audience and doesn’t concoct any similar “dream” scenarios.
