A peppy Superbowl advertisement starring 80s legends was RadioShack's Hail Mary pass, because it is losing money at a rate no analyst expected. The electronics retailer will close 1,100, or one-fifth, of its stores following a rough fourth quarter.

RadioShack shares are tumbling in Tuesday trading on the announcement.
