Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your head

Reading the nostalgia thread last week started me thinking about catchy commercial tunes from my childhood. You know tunes that once you hear you have trouble unhearing and just can't get the tune out of your head and you keep singing it over and over again.

The first one that comes to mind is this one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDSnjjdGh5M


And my second choice is this one. OMG I know all the words still despite never liking bologna. That is true genius IMO. Making a catchy commercial that everyone remembers even if you don't like the food. LOL.

and then of course on a related note.

I would love to hear what commercials you can't get out of your head. Current and past. I don't watch commercials anymore so I don't know any of the current commercials so would love to hear if there are any really catchy ones as the commercials from my childhood. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your

I'll need to look up this commercial later, but it was local to Twin Cities and probably a 20 mile radius, but the jingle was "call 651-488-8888, Pizza Hut delivery is on it's way!"

They still have a $8.88 pizza deal in homage to the phone number, I think. My fiancé and I (and we grew up over a half hour away from each other) called that same number and we probably had to enter our zip code and then were transferred to our local shop! This ran in the late 90s to early 2000s.

The WORST are those stupid "Power to turn back time" commercials with Jon Bon Jovi!


Ugh! I just got the jingle stuck in my head while writing this post!

Re: Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your

I don't know what year it was, but I was pretty young, so maybe mid 70s?
The jingle went:

Dunkin Donuts...
Can't buy em in a grocery store...
Dunkin Donuts...
Can't buy em in a bakeryyyyy!
Dunking Donuts.....
Can't get em at a restaurant...
You gotta get em at:
Dunkin Donuts, it's worth the trip!

The nearest DD was about 20 minutes from us. My parents, apparently, didn't think they were worth the trip, as they never took us there, but my neighbor did. I loved her. :)

Just how old are you DancingFire? Was TV invented yet when you were a child or did that happen later? :devil:

Here's another that stays with me when I hear it. Very catchy. Too bad I could never get my slinky to do what it did in that commercial. ;))

KaeKae, I had to google this as I had never heard it before. Is this it?

Yeah I hate that. The catchy ones that I like are sometimes even annoying when I cannot get them out of my head but the ones I don't like that are stuck in my head are the worst. I hate that Bon Jovi commercial too. Quick, get that I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony commercial into your head. It's much more preferable IMO. :lol:

Yes! It's Minnesota only it looks like! But they have an $8.88 deal because of that in our state.

Thanks for trying. That was really sweet of you!! I was afraid to come back to this thread for fear that Bon Jovi would be stuck in my head... He is!

Re: Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your

Not sure why this Alpha-Bits commercial was the first thing that popped into my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7n8391Oacto

Second one that popped into my head was the Filet-O-Fish from a few years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csrPT9ClVUc

Third is the M&Ms "it's that kind of party" commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coNv3ArXIK8

Most of the commercials that pop into mind from when I was a kid didn't have a jingle so I can get them out of my head no problem...

Wow I just thought of a few more...

Monchichi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=od3cNTl40VI

Some times you feel like a nut! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MOJAxformw

The Great American Chocolate Bar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2qex2cLj_M

I'm sure 20 more will pop in my head after I post this :whistle:

Re: Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your

Alexah, thanks for sharing those. The only one I knew what the "sometimes you feel like a nut sometimes you don't " commercial. Catchy tune for sure.

Here's one I just thought of...


simple but oh so effective and catchy. And I think my kitties would like this one though it is way before their time. :sun:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTunhRVyREU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsVZ8RsSYYA


OMG this one is a good one too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsVZ8RsSYYA

Very catchy. "I am stuck on bandaid cause bandaid's stuck on me" :lol:


and then there's this commercial. Not a fan of Folgers but the commercial was a good one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBDWKOONdto

The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!

Re: Catchy commercials you sometimes cannot get out of your

I heard someone on the radio discussing television and its effect on electoral politics. In the course of the discussion he asked what you thought when you heard, "A horse is a horse...". I knew what I thought. But do younger people also think the same thing?
