Thread: Commercials from the Past???

  1. #1

    Default Commercials from the Past???

    As Christmas gets closer the B C Clark Jingle is EVERYWHERE.....Good advertisement though. Now, they are playing jingle ads (BC Clark) from the past. and, I just started thinking about some of the wild and exciting ads...Linda Soundtrak (when she came on the eggs would crack in the refrigerator)....Bud and Don Mathis (Fire-Blazing prices). Dollar's best buy at TG&Y....Do you remember any of the old ones????

  2. Default Re: Commercials from the Past???

    A few come to mind:

    Broadway Ford in Edmond: "Don't you BUY no ugly truck!"

    The Paul Meade Insurance jingle.

    "That's incredible!" "No, that's Southwest Ford!"

    Tom Park for Lynn Hickey Dodge.

    A couple of my favorite were both car commercials and both were Chevrolet Dealers:

    Alan Merril Chevrolet, Route 66 in Yukon

    Gene Williams Chevrolet, on the Old Prarie Field

    Time to make the donuts....

    Where's the beef?

    Dippity Doo.

    2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.

    I like to eat at Schlotsky's when I can find the time, if I am hungry, and I always am. I guess the thing I like about it's all that cheese and spicy meat yeah that's it...no it's not - I like the bread. That fresh made bread....

    I always liked the commercial where Michael Jordan vs. Larry Bird for McDonald's. Off the parking garage, over the highway, thru the window...

    Timex! Takes a licking but keeps on ticking....

    If cows could they would give Milnot.....

    In the early '60s, when I was in my late single digits, I was allowed to stay up until 10:15 on Wednesday nights. That's the night that WKY news was sponsored by Jax Beer, and the commercials were cartoons. The only one I remember is a frog tells a princess that he'll turn into a handsome prince if she gives him a Jax. She gives him a can, which he drinks and smacks his lips, "Ahhh!"
    She says, "You're no prince! You're just a stupid frog!"
    The frog replies, "I'm not so stupid. I got my Jax Beer didn't I?" Then he looks at the camera and pops his eyebrows up and down a couple of times. That one cracked my Grandma up bigtime.

    As far as tobacco products:

    "Take a puff. It's springtime!" (Salem)

    "I'd rather fight than switch!" (Taryton)

    "A silly little millimeter longer!" (Benson & Hedges 101s)

    "Should a gentleman offer a lady a Tiparillo?"

    "Show us your Larks!" (Lark)

    Someone mentioned Alan Merrell Chevrolet, but they left out his opening line, "Hello folks! Torture time again!"

    Fabacher. The name of the family that operated the Jackson Brewery in New Orleans until the mid-1970s.

    Within a few months to a year, going to Dairy Queen will be a reality. A good friend just signed a franchise agreement to build a New DQ in Norman. If I say anymore, they (he) might hunt me down and take me deep sea fishing, using me as bait. Should be an announcement coming soon to a TV or Newspaper near you.
