Coca-Cola. . . Remember they used to run this ad around Christmas, and all the folks would be holding up candles, or something like that, singing "I like to BUY the world of COKE, and keep it company - That's the song I sing", and then the sung it over? Great commercial!
Calgon - When the lady went to the cleaners and commented on how clean erry-thang was, and the guy was going on and on, and then the lady bursts out the back door and says "We need more CALGON!" Then of course, the classic moment - "Ancient Chinese Secret, Huh?"
Palmolive: I didn't know what she was doing in particular, but I knew that I was DYING for my mother to bring home palmolive diswashing liquid so I can what. . .Yes, ladies and gentlemen, SOAK my hands (in a clear bowl, no less), in some palmolive diswashing detergent, just like MADGE the manicurist did for the other women. Don't ack like y'all didn't either want to, or didn't. Please!
Parkay: Well, of course, two commercials come to mind: The first one is the one where the jars of margarine are talking to each other and one is saying "Parkaaay!" and the other one is saying "Butta". I didn't know what the hell that meant when I was child, why would I know the difference between margarine or butter? Then, of course, the other one, which somewhat scared, me was when the woman (in all of her angelic glory - or was it bewitching), saying "It's not NICE to fool with Mother Natcha!"
Pearl Drops Tooth Polish - Y'all betta be glad I can't find that lady. I know you're smiling, you're thinking of the same lady and anybody over 30 is lying if they say they are not! DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE SAID, EITHER! Need I say more? It's a race to who gets to say her slogan first in the comments section!
This one needs no introduction: "I can bring home the bacon (Enjoli), fry it up in a pan (Enjoli), and never, ever, ever, let you forget you're a man, cuz I'm a woooman, ENJOLI!" Me personally, being all of about SIX years old, didn't understand what she mean when she said bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan, hell I was thinking "Isn't that what she is supposed to do with bacon?" And why is she so dressed up cooking BACON!?!"
