Commercials - Classic or New. Ones you love, hate, remember

Recommended Posts

The over 50 folks on this site are the first generation that has totally grown up with TV commercials our entire life.  It's part of who we are. 

Most are forgettable.  Some are annoying but there have been a number of memorable and entertaining commercials too.   Post ones that you remember or ones that are getting your attention now. 


I'll start.      Highland Appliance in the 70s and 80s were STRONG with commercials.   Many were quite quotable

"Jonathan can't come out to play right now,  He's practicing the piano"

"We were going to give our staff the holiday weekend off, but instead, we're having a sale,  sound great Hackett?    (Unenthusied)  Yipee  

"Whatever happened to Hamburger A La Ketchup"

and of course

"50 Watts per channel, Babycakes"

Maybe the best single commercial in my lifetime.



I remember this one from channel 50, WKBD?  We might have gotten it down here across the border before cable.
