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!"

      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?!!

                  Do the Schaefer one two one for me and one for you. Do the Schaefer one two. Two six packs in the refrigerator one for now and one for later.

                    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.

                                    My vote for most obnoxious, most ridiculous, most insulting, most lame jingle/commercial ever:

                                    (Picture two idiots tussling over a waffle as they sing:)

                                    "Leggo my EGGO
                                    Set it free

                                        etc.

                                        Played between the 8th and 9th innings at Cardinal's games complete with a picture on the Diamond screen of the 8 horse hitch pulling a load of Bud, at Blues hockey games and at many other functions.

                                        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.
                                                  That must be some coffee...

                                                    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.
