    memorable lines from old commercials

    Some lines from some commercials still stick in my mind - I don ' t always remember what the product was, though!

    Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh, what a relief it is!

    Let Mikey try it!

    Infinity times infinity!


    Any that still lurk in your memories?

    Unless you are about my age and grew up in the northwest, no one will recognize this but....

    I'd like to build the world a home
    And furnish it with love
    Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves
    I'd like to teach the world to sing
    In perfect harmony
    I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company
    I'd like to see the world for once
    All standing hand in hand
    And hear them echo through the hills "Ah, peace throughout the land"
    (That's the song I hear)
    I'd like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)
    In perfect harmony
    I'd like to teach the world to sing
    In perfect harmony
    I'd like to build the world a home
    And furnish it with love
    Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

    You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.

    (which turned into - you'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with wet cement.)

    The last part of the Mikey commercial was "he'll eat anything". I swear that Mikey is now grown and a lawyer here in this state because every time I watch his commercial, I say "give it to Mikey, he'll eat anything".

    Crest has been shown to be an effective decay preventive dentifrice when used in a conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular professional care.

    Why do I still remember that? I can't remember what I did yesterday!

    I'm right there with you Ziegamomma! I was just getting ready to enter the words to our "Crest" commercial when I read your post! Absolutely! Why do those words take up precious space in our brain! HA!

    Taking up space in my brain:

    Rest in bed, drink plenty of fluids, and take aspirin, to relieve the pain and fever of a cold or flu...

    and I'm pretty sure all of the others. If there was a contest of commercial jingles, I think I'd win the prize!

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I am not a smoker, never have been, but do you remember when all the cigarette ads were on TV?

    I'd walk a mile for a camel.
    Good to the very last tip. (edit - that was drop, and it was coffee.)
    More doctors smoke camels than any other cigarette.
    Calling Pall Mall, calling Pall Mall,...
    Come to Marlborough country.
    Winston tastes good like a cigarette should.
    A silly millimeter longer.
    You've come a long way baby.

    Maybe some things are best forgotten...
