Where's the beef?

Either Lifecall with "I've fallen and I can't get up" or Liberty Medical with Wilford Brimley and diabeetus, oh the hours of joy.

DDonna Tarttty said...

The one with the Ken and Barbi dolls racing around in the Toy-otas. Loved those ads.

Marlin said...

The old cream of wheat with the man sitting In his kitchen looking out at the snow and the old Gillette razor one from the ‘60’s that was on during Lassie. Or any of the classic McDonald’s Christmas ones.

A tie:

My girrrl robot.

I left him cheese.

There was a Folger's coffee one that seemed kinda incest-y.

PghGirl said...

Mean Joe Greene and the kid in the coke commercial

David Howes said...

How about the McDonald's commercial in the 1960's where you could get a hamburger, drink and fries with change back for your dollar?!

I know, I'm an old man!

The one with the Coca-Cola song

There is a popular Dutch commercial that is on youtube. It's for English classes. Grandparents pick up the children, and they turn on the car radio to a very crude song. The grandparents want to appear to like what their grandchildren like, so they appear to enjoy the song. The kids are laughing in the back of the car. In Holland, there is no censorship, so they can say all the words which would not be permitted Stateside. I was pretty shocked when I first saw it. It does make the point that we should know what the words of the songs mean, and everyone could make use of another language. No need to be self-limiting.

Cadillac commercial that played Phoenix's song '1901'. It was from 2008 or 09 I think.

Farmgirl said...

Any of the Bartles & James commercials

Fiendish Man said...

The JG Wentworth opera commercial. "I have a structured settlement and I need cash now..."

Unknown said...

Did you see the one with the dancing boy band? I never knew I was gay until I saw that.

Sal T said...

My first memory of a commercial was Victor Kermit Kiam buying the company.

Simon said...

Budweiser with Clydesdales and dog

Moose said...

Wendy's "Russian Fashion Show".

J-Mo said...

I love that one where the kids are taunting another kid about the vcr light flashing in his house? What time is it at your house? 12:00? 12:00? 12:00? And they're doing the hand gesture with wavy fingers for flashing. This is a commercial right....

"Opulence.....I has it"

Coca-Cola ad from the 70's. International kids singing "I'd like to teach the world to sing".

Christian Schulzke said...

Ridley Scott's Chanel No 5 commercial with the pool and plane from 1979.

Remember when Cindy Crawford tried to sing in that Charlie perfume commercial? It aired for a week or so before being redubbed because the vocals were embarrassingly bad.
Good times.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Ann
You mean Don Draper's masterpiece? ☺

cheesegrater15 said...

My favorites on TV now are the Haribo adults with kid voices and the Twizzler ads. Both are so brilliant and happy they even make a crotchety old bitch like me laugh.

I can't think of anything that stands out as favorite of all time, but I love the ad where the puts his Puli on his head. I think it's a beer commercial.

I also enjoy the original Clapper commercial, Matt LeBlanc pouring Heinz ketchup off a roof, Demi Moore & Michael J Fox's Diet Pepsi commercials, and my all time fave, Encyclopedia Brittanica.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Farmgirl, B&J ads were classic!

As David Spade snarked, "and they call it tone-deaf!"

The guy painting the logotype in the end zone. He finishes, and a player walks up eating a Snickers and says "Nice job, but who are The Chefs?"

HushHush said...

The operatic "who stole my Rice Crispies" commercial from the 70's.

Sara, Making It Work said...

From you, alright! I learned it from watching YOU!!!

All those commercials legit scared me off of drugs.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Found it!

ViPoo and zoobie do Ribena.

Low Key said...

The Mayhem insurance ads.

And somebody mentioned mini giraffes? I forgot those... they were great!

just sayin' said...

+1 DRK...the Direct Tv Russian "Petite Lap Giraffe" commercials and the Sokoblovsky Farms website with live cams of the giraffes was the best!

Spectrum's a close second for me with their Monsters ads, "satellite tv is evil".

Southwest Airlines had one I loved....guy walks through first class of a typical airplane, champagne is flowing, music loud, hostesses sitting on passenger laps, etc. He goes through a curtain the economy class, and the music shifts to a funeral dirge, passengers are huddled together like refugees. Only saw it once, but funny as heck.

Sara, Making It Work said...

WHOA! I remember that Folgers commercial but had scrubbed it from my brain.
But honestly, the implied incest does not bother me as much as the implication that FOLGERS GROUND IS CONSIDERED "REAL COFFEE" COMPARED TO WHATEVER THEY'RE SERVING IN AFRICA.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

@Sara You make a great point. The brother would be like, "I get back home and the house has turned into a Lutheran church basement?! Did you make this in an urn, ffs!"

Years ago, there was a Purina Kitten Chow commercial with this little orange striped tabby zooming across a hallway from room to room, while the lady of the house walked down the hall with a basket of laundry.

Then closeup of kitten revving his motor - "Vroooom-Vroom!"

I can't find it anywhere. :-(

Thought it was clever when I saw it on a clip of the best commercials: “The IKEA Product Testing Commercial”

Going waaay back - the 60s Right Guard classic “Hi Guy” series with Chuck McCann in the bathroom mirror. Alka Seltzer’s “Spicy Meatball” that kicked off the whole “I can’t believe I ate the whooooole thing” ads. And anything Stan Freberg had a hand in creating - like the prune spots. And Mariette Hartley and James Garner selling polaroids.

Land Manatee said...
