    I tried this as a question and only got one response, so now I am going to try this as a forum question. It can be any product or service from past or present. Just to jump start things, here is the response I got from the original question posted yesterday.

    SheWrites808 says
    "J-E-L-L-O"
    "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner, that is what I'd truly like to be..."
    "I'm a Pepper, She's a Pepper, He's a Pepper, We're a Pepper, wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too? Be a Pepper, drink Dr. Pepper oh yeah..." and last, but certainly not least:
    "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!" (McDonalds)

    There have been so many, some of the most memorable for me:

    Wendy's- Where's the beef?

    Quizno's Subs- the rats singing the jingle song- I don't remember the song but I remember thinking what ad agency thought it would be cool to use rats as spokesmen for a sandwhich shop?

    I've fallen and I can't get up!

    Lots of others-to many to name.

    A good start.

    I Love the little old ladies from the "Where's the beef?" commercials.

    Does anyone remember the billboards for Tareyton Cigarettes that showed a person with a black eye and the slogan "I'd rather fight than switch"?

    "Coke - It's the real thing."

    "There always after me Lucky Charms."

      s/b 'they're' always after me lucky charms

      This reminded me of some other cereal commercials:

      Trix aren't for you, silly rabbit!

      mikey likes it!

    Classic Marketing Slogans:

    "You deserve a break today..."
    "How do spell relief?"
    "It's the real thing?"
    "Your in good hands..."

    How about unusual radio commercial slogans from your local radio station sponsors...to me they all get real old-real quick...

    "I see u baby, shaking that a*s,  shaking that a*s."

    In the ad, all you can see is people shaking their booties.

    Its an Ad in the UK for a Car.  I'm embarassed to say that I don't remember the name of the Car. It has an unusual Backside).

    "It's what's up front that counts!"...Winston cigarettes.

    Along about 1966, I was taking a Zoology college class and cramming for a test.  Zoology is NOT my strong suit.  My (now ex) wife told me the next morning (after cramming until the wee hours but before heading to the campus to take the test) that in the middle of the night I'd reared up on one elbow (which woke her instantly), looked her straight in the eye, and announced in a ringing voice,

    "IT'S THE LITTLE WORM UP FRONT THAT COUNTS!!!"

    I got a "B" on the test.

      Hmmm. Funny and profound all at the same time.

      Does anybody remember the line following "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz?"

            lrohnerposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            "meow, meow, meow, meow/meow, meow, meow, meow"

            Translated from kittyspeak:

            "we want tuna, we want liver, come on Meow Mix please deliver..." (it was Meow Mix, wasn't it???)

            or

            "I wish I were an Oscar Mayer weiner, that is what I truly want to beeeee. Cuz if I were an Oscar Mayer weiner, everyone would be in love with meeee."

            or

            "A little dab'll do ya."

    I've never forgotten this one:

    Aye, yii, yii, yiiii, I am dee Frito Bandito...

    Or this one:

    Puddin', puddin', shake a puddin...

    And:

    I can't believe I ate the WHOLE thing...

      "Puddin, puddin, shake a puddin...?????"

      I assume that's those Jello puddin snack thingees, but how did I miss that one?

      1. TamCor profile image79
        TamCorposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I can't remember if it was Jello or not, but probably.  It came in some sort of cup with a lid that you added milk, too, and then you shook it up until it thickened into an instant pudding--I loved it! smile

      "Aye, yii, yii, yiiii, I am dee Frito Bandito!
      Give me Fruto corn chips, and I'll be your friend,
      (pulls out guns, points them towards camera)
      The Frito Bandito you must not offend!"

    puppascott,

    "Does anyone remember the billboards for Tareyton Cigarettes that showed a person with a black eye and the slogan "I'd rather fight than switch"? "

    For some reason those old cigarette ads really stuck.  Maybe because they were on for so long.

    "I'd walk a mile for a Camel"
    "Winston tastes good like a cigarettes should."
    "Taste the delicious difference in new Montclaire."
    "LSMFT - Lucky Strike means fine tobacco."

    and who could forget...

    "You've come a long way, Baby" (Virginia Slims)

      puppascottposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I used to listen to a station on Sirius Radio that would replay the classic radio programs, commercials and all. Lucky Strike sponsored a lot of shows.

      Here's one that will stick in your head all day.

      "It's Slinky, it's Slinky, for fun it's a wonderful toy. It's Slinky, it's Slinky, it's fun for a girl and a boy."

    Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce,special orders don't upset us - Burger King (before that creepy lookin "King" came around)

    Meow, meow, meow, meow - Meow, meow, meow, meow - Meow Mix cat food

    And of course, as already mentioned above, the Oscar Meyer Weiner jingle - Classic

    Geez - am I dating myself?

    I love the "Nannerpuss" commercial for Denny's


    Also Doublemint gum commercials with the twins

    "Look, Madge, I soaked in it!"

    The whole "Smilin' Bob" Enzyte commercials. Bob with his "sack full of pride," cracks me right up.

    "Leggo my Eggo"

    "What's in your wallet?"

    "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids!"

    One commercial that was on when I was a kid was for the Nestle Alpine White candy bar, which I'm pretty sure isn't made anymore. It featured a handsome dude and beautiful gal riding a white horse in some winter wonderland. Angelic female voices sang softly: "creamy white, dreamy white, Alpine White's the very best, N-E-S-T-L-E-S."  Very dramatic for a chocolate bar but I wanted to live inside that commercial at the time! *sigh* big_smile
