Favorite TV Commercials: Now and Then

Updated on January 19, 2015

Who wouldn't want to join after seeing Joann and Brian and hearing how they laugh when they get up and they laugh when they go to bed?

The Teaberry gum commercial is one of the more memorable commercials. Pop a stick of Teaberry gum into your mouth, take a minute to do the Teaberry Shuffle and be on your merry way!

The zippy tune in the commercial is performed by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

Campaign magazine called the Coca-Cola Teach the World to Sing commercial "one of the best-loved and most influential ads in TV history"."Buy the World a Coke", the song in the commercial was rewritten without the Coca Cola references as "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" and within 2 weeks was on the national charts.

In 1990 "Hilltop Reunion" aired during the Super Bowl featuring the original singers (now adults) and their children.

"Clydesdale Respect" aired only once, during the 2002 Super Bowl.

This was Anheuser-Busch's way of honoring those affected by September 11th.

This Wendy's "Where's the beef" commercial first aired January 10, 1984.

Clara Peller became an instant phenomenon and her famous line "Where's the beef" an instant catchphrase.

If you were around then you surely remember "Where's the beef?"

The last one, Lonnie's Carpet, is a regional commercial from Northern Illinois.

      When I was a kid, our whole family dug those "Where's the beef?" commercials in an over-the-top, constantly-quoting way. I still can't hear that line without giggling :)

      I think the only one that reached the UK was the Coke ad, or at least it's the only one I remember.
