Yes, a lot of those are great ads!! Especially NIKE, always love NIKE commercials!!

I always loved the alka seltzer commercials, and of course volkswagon.

Carey October 11, 2007 at 8:52 AM  

I liked the NIKE ads. I dont remember some of these. Happy Thursday.

Be still my heart with #6. Did you notice how not so subtle they were with the change from 2 months salary to 3. Hub's still thankful we got married before that alteration went through!

I thought I'd recognize more! I'm a sucker for a good jingle!

i agree on McDonald's Alka seltzer,Nike and Clairol those stick in my head for weeks at a time

Those are great ones. I love the "pop, pop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is!"

I can still sing all the words to the Big Mac song and I still love them (as an occasional treat, of course). Still love, love, love them!

I only remember a few (very few) but I enjoy watching those TV shows that show the funniest / most imaginative commercials - I never remember them either !

Tempest Knight October 11, 2007 at 10:19 AM  

I've always adored Coca-Cola's commercials. :)

WorksForMom October 11, 2007 at 10:47 AM  

These all rock! Great list!

yh October 11, 2007 at 12:16 PM  

Great list! I love jingles, myself... they're so catchy.. these days, they don't have that many memorable commercials..

Where's the beef? is another fave :)

pussreboots October 11, 2007 at 12:43 PM  

It's amazing how permanent some advertising can be. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Darla October 11, 2007 at 12:53 PM  

oh, fun memories! I did a TT on commercials about a year ago--no overlaps, though. :)

Nap Warden October 11, 2007 at 4:35 PM  

Great list! I'm with Sec. agent Mama, love Nike!

Robin October 11, 2007 at 4:49 PM  

Those were some great ones alright. It's amazing how much ads can become a part of popular culture.

Babystepper October 11, 2007 at 9:37 PM  

Whenever I hear the classical piece played during the De Beers ads, I still think of diamonds. I suppose that's the sign of an effective campaign.

Nicholas October 12, 2007 at 2:33 AM  

Some of those have passed into the language: We try harder.

Kathy October 12, 2007 at 10:11 PM  

I think I remember some of those ads!
And yes, Max looks like a real person/scarecrow! I didn't even try!
Just returning a visit to my site...have a great weekend!

It's funny how the simple tag lines stick with you. Though I wasn't around for all of them, some are legendary. They've all penetrated into our culture. Very clever.
