How many of you remember Barry Manilow singing a jingle for Stridex pimple pads on the radio before he got famous? (I know for sure that he wrote the jingle; not really 100% sure that he was the original voice, but I think so.)

"Give your face,
Something to smile about.
With Striiiiiidex!"

barry also wrote the famous "you deserve a break today" McDonalds jingle. I have to admit I Love Barry Manilow. I will put his greatest hits CD in my car and Sing OUTLOUD to Copacabana, and mandy, and weekend in new england. My friends think im nuts.

Doing a little research, because I could not remember it:

Once upon a time there was an engineer. Choo Choo Charlie was his name we hear. He had an engine and he sure had fun. He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run. Charlie says, "Love my Good & Plenty," Charlie says, "Really rings a bell." Charlie says, "Love my Good & Plenty. Don't know any other candy that I love so well."

How about Cream's famous (?!!) Falstaff Beer ad from the '60s?

(insert throat-clearing noise here)

Falstaff
The thirst slaker
Falstaff
The thirst slaker

The beer that can slake any thirst, any thirst
The beer you reach for first
When you want to quench your thirst

Falstaff
The thirst slaker
Falstaff
The thirst slaker
Falstaff

Yes, ladies and gents, that is how you get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...

"The Thirst Slaker"? Who thought that was a good idea?!!

I don't think anyone has posted:
"I'm Chiquita banana and I've come to say . . ."
I can't remember the rest of the jingle, but I loved the fruity hat on the banana girl.
And it wasn't a jingle, but when I was a kid in St. Pete, there was a used car saleman that used to broadcast from:
"The NATIONAL! AUTO! SUUUUUPERMARKET!"

I have the jingle at work. You can get it on their web site. My boss used to sing it on demand. Actually there wasn't much demand.

Ok, I have to say the most annoying commercials I have ever seen (and unfortunately it's not just the jingle, but the whole deal that's just infuriating) are those assinine, idiotic, Mentos ads. "Fresh goes better, Mentos freshness, Fresh goes better with Mentos fresh and full of life!" (What the heck does that mean, anyway?!) And they always show someone getting him or herself out of a jam with a brilliant idea that comes to them after popping a Mento - like it's a drug or something. And then they hold out their Mentos pack and everyone around smiles at them and all is well with the world. And then the announcer comes on and pronounces it wierd - "Mennn-Tosss, the fresh maker!" I swear I'm going to put my foot through the TV screen every time one of those ads comes on.

Hey, Cakes, wait just a minute there. How can you so unfairly dismiss an artist who made a fortune singing "I Write The Songs", a song which he, in fact, didn't write? His music may suck but you've got to give Barry points for his amazing sense of the ironic.

A friend just gave me the complete lyrics. To Wit.

Here comes the Bud, Here comes the big #1
Budweiser Beer, the King is second to none
The King is comin', so clear and strong
When you say Bud you've said it all
When you say Bud you've said it all




My friends & I try to make it to the Aiken, SC steeplechase every March (a good excuse for a good picnic) and last year they had the Budweiser hitch, which made a lo-o-ong circuit around the track with the Bud jingle playing loudly on the PA all the while - we felt like the Simpsons in Duff Land!

Duff Beer for meee- Duff Beer for yooou-
I'll have a Duff - You have one too! (repeat 647 times)

Oddly I remember a radio jingle, specifically a baritone spoken 'Excuse me while I have a sip of my nice cool National Beer!' (chorus - 'National Beer, National Beer...') Odder still, it was way off in South America, far from any National Beer.

I know you'll hear this from everyone, but that was Chock-Full-O-Nuts, not Maxwell House. Maxwell House was good to the last drop:

Was Maxwell House also the one that had ads with the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) playing Cora the Coffee Lady? She rocked. I liked her much better than Mrs. Olsen from Folger's - where everyone would point to the side of the can and ask "What's 'Mountain Grown' Mean?" Duh.

If you look down the supermarket aisle to your left, you'll see a Latino gentleman with a donkey and a sombrero. Ask him!

What's up with that ghostly Valdez character, anyway? Always apparating in the market, nodding knowingly, then vanishing. Sounds suspicious, if you ask me.

The same way that me and Alhambra/Sparkletts water were "makin' friends" in the '80s. In fact, I was visiting LA and participated in a marketing focus group for that ad. The samples they showed us were for Sparkletts, but when I got home it ran on TV for Alhambra! Same company; different brands 500 miles apart. Silly.

Dearfolk,
Schaefer, Schaefer Light, Stroh's, and Stroh Light are all available in cans in Athens, Georgia. My nearby Winn/Dixie Supermarket sells them for budget prices. I wouldn't give you anything for Schaefer, but Stroh's remains a quality beer (it has a nice little sourish Pilsener taste to it, like the real good ones from Europe), even if it isn't "fire-brewed" any more.

Vince,
National Beer is a brand from South America (I can't remember which country) in addition to being one of Baltimore's historic brands. I remember hearing beer ads in English and Spanish on Cuban radio before Castro took over; brands I was unfamiliar with (of course I was, like, 11 when the coup took place).

Beloved,
It has not been my intention to hog space; I've simply replied where I noted or felt the need to... which now brings me to my actual post!

1) Wouldn't you like to have a real Dutch cookie?
Jan Hagel, Jan Hagel, Jan Hagel....

2) Wet, cold, and delicious...
National Bohemian Beer!

3) National Beer, National Beer -
Wet, cold, delicious National Beer...
And while I'm singing, I'm proud to say
It's brewed on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay!!

4) Country Club Malt Liquor - aged three times longer than beer.
No wonder there's a difference...
Aged three times longer than beer.
Three times, three times, three times - yes, three times longer than beer.
(Announcer tag) "M. K. Goetz Company, St. Joseph, Missouri."

5) Now - does ANYONE remember the dreadfully bad Suffer Dandles commercials for Schlitz? He was worse than Mrs. Miller.
"Here's Suffer Dandles for Schlitz." Then he would come on and saing a rat tuneless sawng whal strumin his geetar out of tune wharng wharng. Then you heard someone say "Ugh!" and a door slammed. - A Schlitz point-of-sale piece from that time read "Suffer now we must."

6) There was also a series of "The Journeymen for Schlitz" during the folk music craze, circa 1963. I own a couple of Journeymen albums on Capitol. Now... can anyone tell me what famous fellow was in that group? Dinner is on me for the first correct answer.

Longwindedly Enough For An Unnamed Typhoon, Ort. Carlton in Breezy, Cold Athens, Georgia.

2) Wet, cold, and delicious...

3) National Beer, National Beer -
Wet, cold, delicious National Beer...
And while I'm singing, I'm proud to say
It's brewed on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay!!

4) Country Club Malt Liquor - aged three times longer than beer.
No wonder there's a difference...
Aged three times longer than beer.
Three times, three times, three times - yes, three times longer than beer.

5) Now - does ANYONE remember the dreadfully bad Suffer Dandles commercials for Schlitz? He was worse than Mrs. Miller.
"Here's Suffer Dandles for Schlitz." Then he would come on and saing a rat tuneless sawng whal strumin his geetar out of tune wharng wharng. Then you heard someone say "Ugh!" and a door slammed. - A Schlitz point-of-sale piece from that time read "Suffer now we must."

6) There was also a series of "The Journeymen for Schlitz" during the folk music craze, circa 1963. I own a couple of Journeymen albums on Capitol. Now... can anyone tell me what famous fellow was in that group? Dinner is on me for the first correct answer.

Hum, don't know about your, meaning Athens, way. The last time I was in Athens - about 1975 or so - my beloved Crimson Tide was being reduced to a slow trickle between The Hedges. Dean Rusk, the former Sec. of State was prancing down the middle of the street yelling "We beat 'Bama". Not a pleasant introduction to your fair city. But I suppose what's past is past and perhaps come the spring thaw I'll take you up on the offer.

Vince,
National Beer is a brand from South America (I can't remember which country) in addition to being one of Baltimore's historic brands. I remember hearing beer ads in English and Spanish on Cuban radio before Castro took over; brands I was unfamiliar with (of course I was, like, 11 when the coup took place).
Internationally, Ort. Carlton in Athens, GA. (Where Cuban AM Skywave Bounces In At Night, Especially In The Summer).


Really! Mind you, I was 11 when I heard the ad - wouldn't do for me to be up on beer at the time.

For tv ads my favorite was Strohs. One in particular came off looking like a PSA - a dad enters his son's room to discuss what he does with his friends, pointedly asks 'Do you drink beer?' Son answers 'Of course I drink beer...(we finally see him)...I'm 35 years old!' Dad replies 'Well, I just want to make sure you're drinking *good* beer, son...'

That was done to the "Mexican Shuffle" record by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. Gee, I actually thought it was the Tendermint Shuffle.... Clark's also made Sour Lemon Chewing Gum - boy, was it tarrrrrt!
Unchompingly, Ort. Carlton in Gum-Under-My-Seat-But-I-Didn't-Put-It-There Athens, Georgia.


I must confess that I own a copy on my Best of Tijuana Brass. I used to play my trumpet along with Herb's records -- to the dismay of everyone else in the house.




Not only do I also own a copy, I've played it more than once this week: my two-year-old is digging it, and I'll do anything to avoid little-kid music. So far, so good. She likes a lot of 70s funk.

I love regional commercials because they're so awful. Any Northeasterners rememeber Ruby and Choo-Choo advertising Railroad Salvage stores?

Or the ad for some fake jewelry with a close up at the end...it's a blonde woman who says completely unconvincingly, "Wow. What a bargain. How do I order?".

Ah, Ruby and Choo-Choo. We had an ad for a local restaurant, now gone, where the played the guitar and sang Born to Eat. He then ended with "Mm-mmm good," which was as convincing as if he had just eaten a five-pound box of 10-penny nails.

Hull's did not have any jingles that I can recall. I grew up drinking Hull's. One of my uncles worked at the brewery, and he gave my father several quart bottles of Hull's every week. My father would pour me a small glass of it whenever he had some himself. When I was in high school in New Haven our football coach would tell us to go home and drink a beer to replace the fluids we sweated out in practice. My replacement fluid was always Hull's.

Here's a jingle from a TV commercial for cigarettes. Remember when it was OK to advertise cigarettes on TV? When did they stop doing that...late '70s?

"You've come a long way, baby...
To get where you've got to today,
You've got Virginia Slims now, baby...
You've come a long, long way!"

If you've got the time, we've got the beer, Miller beer.
Miller tastes too good to hurry through.
But when it's time to relax, Miller stands clear, beer after beer.

Tasted like Kix but in the shape of animal crackers, but smaller I think. The song goes: "Here goes crispy critters, the good wholesome bunch. The low-sugar cereal with lots of cah-runch! They're indubitably delicious!" The commercials featured a little girl who couldn't say "indubitably"



Or better yet -- and earlier still....: "The one and only cereal / that comes in the shape of animals."

Two my wife remembers (She was a cat person before I was):

1. To the tune of "Ain't We Got Fun?"
Little Friskies, Little Friskies
Ain't we got fun?
By the bowlful, by the bagful...
Ain't we got fun?

2. To the tune of "Old Time Rock N Roll"
Just take those Little Friskies off the shelf.
I can knock 'em down by myself.
When I got Little Friskies in my bowl,
It makes me wanna just Looooooooooooose control!

One cartoon ad that was too bizarre to be irritating was for a kids' baked product, the name of which I do not recall. A woman came riding out on an egg beater singing:

I'm somebody's,
I'm somebody's,
I'm somebody's mom.

This idiotic ad is still running in my neck of the woods:

Oh mama don't you fix me no more meatloaf,
Don't want no mac and cheese,
I want some fun piled on a bun
I want a Manwich please.

Not sure about that first line, but it's something about meat loaf. Can you imagine a reasonably intelligent person passing up homemade meat loaf and mac and cheese for a Manwich???
