@Sneki95 , It is not unusual for ads to be suggestive. What you said reminded me of one. Does she or doesn’t she?

@Seek , Nicely done.

zenvelo's avatar

The first one depends on where you live. West of the Rockies, it is Best Foods mayonnaise.

The third one is “Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch. (not quit).

“it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature” about Parkay Margarine.

Away go troubles down the drain with Roto-Rooter

I can’t believe I ate the whole thing. means you need some Alka Seltzer.

LostInParadise's avatar

Thanks for the correction.

The last one may have been just local to the New York area. It was for a locally brewed beer. For a time, it was widely broadcast over radio in the NYC metropolitan area.

zenvelo's avatar

@Dutchess_III You just want your Lays…

Dutchess_III's avatar

I do? I didn’t think I did.

“Bet you can’t eat just one” was a McDonalds commercial for their old fries, which they don’t have any more. The slogan was spot on. Those were the best damn fries in the universe.

zenvelo's avatar

@Dutchess_III It was a Lays Potato Chip Ad, not McDonalds.

The “old fries” were cooked in beef tallow, but McDonalds tried to sell them as vegetarian.

LostInParadise's avatar

@Dutchess_III , Yes Maypo! @janbb got it right. I don’t know how far back the ad goes.

My last entry is for Rheingold beer. Has anybody else heard of it?

@stanleybmanly ,
LSMFT = Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. When we were kids, there was a risque version that started out, Loose straps mean… I will let you work out the rest.
Geritol was the cure for tired blood.
Exxon (then Esso for Standard Oil) puts a tiger in your tank
The others sound familiar but I can’t come up with the names yet.

janbb's avatar

My beer is Rheingold the dry beer, so buy Rheingold whenever you buy beer!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Do you have any proof of that @zenvelo? I know they were cooked in beef tallow (which is what made them so good!) but when did McDs try to call it vegetarian? All the way up until sometime in the 80s “vegetarian” wasn’t even an issue. I do know when they changed to vegetable old and their fries tanked, IMO.

zenvelo's avatar

@Dutchess_III Right here

Why do you question every single thing I post? I am not making alternatiev facts.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I don’t question you very much at all @zenvelo!

janbb's avatar

Is this the argument clinic?

Dutchess_III's avatar

OK, it WAS vegetable oil, but it had beef “flavoring.” But yep. They apologized. How could any Hindu or vegan expect to go to McDonalds and not get cross contamination even by accident?

Still their fries will never be as good as when they actually fried them IN beef tallow.

@Zaku Firestone (the name that is known) Next: tune went “Reach for Nabisco” there was then a sort of whinny with the spoken word “Pardner”. The tune then continued “the bright red seal on the package end means there’s mighty good cookies inside my friend”. I loved that tune sung cowboy style by a guy with a beautiful clear voice with the “my friend” chiming in by a group of voices at the end. It was a staple on the Saturday morning cartoon shows with the tune playing while a stick figure cowboy on a stick figure horse twirled a lasso then “roped” a package of Oreos.

You’re darn tootin. I like fig newtons. Saturday mornings again.

Refreshing without filling goes way back to the 50s and was the last line of the Pepsi Cola jingle “Pepsi Cola hits the spot. With 12 full ounces-that’s a lot”

Coors beer @stanleybmanly.

Anybody remember the politically incorrect days when it was “MAN YOU STINK! Use Dial.” Or “YOUR BREATH COULD STOP AN ELEPHANT! Use X mouth wash.” People would take of their shoes and everyone around them would faint from the smell!

“Switch from hots to Janbb”. The cigar goes to you. In fact I can remember when images of your relatives were everywhere when you and your kind were universally the emblem designating air conditioned public spaces. There was usually a caption under your photo that read “It’s cool inside”

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

My generation felt there was nothing more patronizing than that spewed from the corporate world and this one particullar, historically cynical industry within it that produced the slogan:

You’ve come a long way, baby.

What industry, what product, what brand, and what movement were they addressing?

LostInParadise's avatar

Virginia Slims cigarettes. They were trying to associate with the feminist movement. I agree with your description.

Strauss's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus That was about the time TV ads switched from a “but our product because it’s better” meme to a “buy our product because you deserve it” meme.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Yep. And everything in every add became “Revolutionary”.
