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....

"Beep Beep! Jarvis Jeep!" (Vancouver, WA dealer)

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.
Time to make the doughnuts.

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.)

Wasn't the dog's name Farfel?? I like that one too!!

Yooper32 05-30-2015 05:26 AM

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".

janjj 05-30-2015 05:45 AM

Too bad you had to have a bald headed one!

really can't remember what they were advertizing !!

ziegamomma 05-30-2015 06:09 AM

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!

NoraB 05-30-2015 06:49 AM

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!

mcwillia 05-30-2015 07:09 AM

"Take off......take it all off"

this commercial came with a sexy Swedish blonde and a guy shaving to the Gypsy Rose Lee stripping theme music

clevermom3kids 05-30-2015 07:13 AM

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!

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...

"Gardol" (Colgate commercial from the 50s. I still use it.;)!)

"The relentless pursuit of perfection." (Lexus 1990s.....made me buy my first one in 1993 and my second one in 1997.

SO glad I did that because after my divorce in 2000, I know I will never be able to buy another car. That 1997 Lexus is now 18 years old and is still serving me well, though it has some not so minor blemishes, just like me.:))

remember the "Un Cola Nuts" for 7-UP

maviskw 05-30-2015 06:42 PM

Burma Shave signs. The last one I saw, just a few years back:
If you drive
When caution ceases
You are apt
To rest in pieces.

I had heard they were going to put up another saying on that road; they had a contest and there was a winner, but there still are no signs. I'm waiting.

Okay - how about: "Forty isn't fatal."

In Seattle when I was growing up we had a car dealer called Ralph Williams -
Hi friends! Ralph Williams from Ralph Williams Chrysler Plymouth, 132nd and Aurora Avenue North, in the City of Seattle.

There was also a car dealer named Disk Balsh - he used to smash cars with a sledge hammer then laugh like a wild person.

Hanes makes you feel good all under
I'd rather switch than fight...i think that was Vicroy cigarettes
Like a rock!...I loved the one where the truck backs the boat in the lake and the competition says, 'like a rock' (because it is sinking)
Carnation evaporated milk....from contented cows

By golly, I think you're right! I'd forgotten the dog's name. Wonder who actually did the voice? Sometimes I sing that song when we have chocolate here...crazy lady...but it lightens the spirit.

These sure bring back memories.

The "zoom, zoom" whispered at the end of the Mazda adds is back!

AND I just couldn't watch the baby boy in the crib advertising E-trade (I think) singing..."Nobody knows the trouble I've seen..." Deep bass voice...hilarious!

Hanes makes you feel good all under and Gentlemen prefer Hanes. I heard these a lot in school because my last name was Haines. Remember - and she'll tell two friends, and she'll tell two friends..... and the screen kept filling up with women's faces? I think it was for hair color. We use that line a lot in Sunday School. Just think how quickly God's word could spread but we will tell people about our hair color.lol Our daughter didn't understand what they were saying when she was little and would say Hucky Hucky Sick sack instead of Heft Hefty Cinch Sack. She's 30 and we still tease her about that.

A local hardware store had a Big Clarence Sale. This tall good looking guy was sitting on his haunches and correcting us. He said, "It's not Clearance, it's Clarence."
