Keep America beautiful:

Man, what a whiner....
If you were around in the 70's, you remember these commercials. It's funny how a commercial goes on for years and years, and it becomes a fabric of our society, then all of a sudden they disappear, and you don't think anything of it, until you realize it's gone, like the "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" commercial, and the "Bounty" commercials with Nancy Walker as Rosie the diner waitress, or the "Folgers" commercial with Mrs. What's-her-name, or the "Fill it to the rim with Brim" commercials that were so annoying...

My favorite were the Madge the manicurist for Palmolive commercials.

"Your soaking in it."

I remember the Folger's commercials. It was Mrs. Olsen (Olson? Whatever) that pitched that product.

Ad campaigns are fleeting mainly because they're always looking for a new catchphrase, or because the person behind the beloved character isn't available anymore for whatever reason. I couldn't picture anyone else taking Nancy Walker's place in the Bounty commercials; she'd become so tied in with that product it never would have worked.

Keie: Who could forget Madge????

Mr. P.: That's right, Olsen. I forgot. I guess my memory's not what it used to be..

Ann: What commercial was that? Pepto Bismo? Alka Seltzer?
Drano????????

Keith said...

Yeah, I remember these commercials. There were so many commercials that were staples of that day. You always saw them.

grannyann said...

Alka Seltzer I think. I loved the look on the guys face when he said that.

Iron Eyes Cody really should've been Watery Eyes Cody or Conjunctivitis Cody. I just thought he always got something in his eye.

joe said...

Keith: So right, my friend. SO right!

Ann: thanks for clearing that up for me. You're great!

Marissa: Me too!

I was very observant as a kid. It's like everything I saw got "Kodaked" into my brain..
