What are your favorite "old" commercials?

Asked by WillWorkForChocolate (23163points) January 8th, 2011

Inspired by this question.

Some of the current ones are very funny, but I remember commercials from years ago that still crack me up just from thinking about them.

My absolute favorites are:

cat herding

streaking sheep

FedExing the stick

A lot of the current commercials just don’t measure up to the “older” ones from between 2 and 10 years ago.

The Coca Cola ads. This is it, I’d like to teach the world to sing, and more. Coke had some really nice commercials.

I crack up about the Special K pinch an inch ad from back in the day. Now people grab a tire.

@noelleptc You mentioning that one made me remember Where’s the Beef! that I laughed at as a kid.

I do that with a lot of the old commercial jingles. Even the ones that listed phone numbers.

I love this one. And this. These never aired in the US, but I think they’re great.
