Advertising and Persistence of Memory

I was slicing a banana as part of my breakfast this morning when the Chiquita Banana jingle popped into my head.  I don't think that bit of advertising fluff has been on the air for decades, it was on radio in the days before TV.

How many other advertising jingles and slogans are part of you?

Now I have the jingle about "Choo Choo Charlie" going through my head.

  • Here are a few more to jog memories:

    "Oxydol's own Ma Perkins"

    "Wonderful Ivory Snow"

    "Hasn't scratched yet" with a picture of an emerging chick for Bon Ami cleaner.

    "Wheaties, breakfast of Champions brings you Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy"

    The slogan at the end of this advert has sticked to my brain ever since the first time i saw it. The commercial has been running every christmas since before i was born, so it's a classic.

    A short explaination of the slogan:

    Danish - English

    Glædelig - Merry

    Jul - Christmas

    Og - And

    Godt - Good (means Happy in the slogan)

    Tub'år - Tub'year --> The bear company is named "Tuborg", and they've replaced "Nyt" with "Tub'", "Nyt" means New and "Nytår" means New Year , so they've changed a little bit of a greeting, making it stick to everyones brain. Pretty clever marketing actually...

    The complete slogan is translated like this:

    Glædelig jul og godt Tub'år... - Merry christmas and happy Tub'year...

    Original greeting:

    Glædelig jul og godt nytår... - Merry christmas and happy new year...

  • Very punny.  Applicable to the current Honda ads.  Lots of double entendre.

    How about "You know its good because its Heinz".

  • Here is a real oldie that my father used to sing, so I suppose it is from the 1920-30 time frame.

    "Toasty yeast is tasty

    "To the appetite

    "Creamy, wholesome candy

    "Try a little nibble".

    I am not sure if this candy still exists.

    I can only ask if I can find a real medium.  My father had been dead for over twenty years, and he never said, but he often sang it.  It has a tune, but I am not up to writing it out.  However, since we lived on the border (Niagara Falls) I guess that it was a candy bar you could get in the states (Niagara Falls, NY).  It wasn't around after the war.

    "Brylcreem...a little dab'll do ya!

    Brylcreem...you look so debonair

    Brylcreem...the gals'll all pursue ya…

    They love to get their fingers in your hair!

    Brylcreem...a little dab'll do ya!

    For guys who use their heads about their ha-i-ir!" 

    I was barely walking, but my brothers thought this was hilarious.  They had crew cuts.

    "Let Noxema cream your face...so the razor won't!  Aaah!" 

    Joe Namath was in this one, I think.  Mercy!  I believe I was in grade school.

    "What'll ya have?  Pabst Blue Ribbon!"

    Mom wasn't crazy about me singing this, especially when church folk were over.

    "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!"

    I wish I could remember something useful...20.gif

    Ahahaha, this reminds me of my very own jingle that I would sing to my son during diaper changes, a take off of a nursery rhyme.  "I'm a little Pee Tot, short and stout..." well, you get the idea.  43.gif
