~ Ad Slogans ... The Best Ever - Sun, 03/25/12 8:12 PM
I just saw this list ... most are inarguable ... I wonder what you think they missed ... (errors of OMISSION and/or COMMISSION) ... some may be good, but had gotten by me.

Funny ... being in the ad racket myself, I was amused for years by people who touted the deodorant slogan "Never Let Them See You Sweat" as the best ever ... problem is almost nobody could remember (without Google) who (what brand) that slogan was for.

A little background on Red's Tamales...the slogan was coined by Bruce (Sir) Sedley in 1963 while working at an ad agency in Orinda, CA, and voiced by Mel Blanc...

                                                   
Another Bay Area eatery was Chicken Delight..."Don't cook tonight, call Chicken Delight" and they had a VW with a chicken on it as their delivery vehicle... Founded in 1952 in Illinois they had over 1,000 franchises in the 1960's nationwide. eventually sold to a company out of Winnipeg, Canada

Chicken Delight was a chain with around 1,000 stores around the country. Now, it's a Canadian company, with some stores still in the New York area.

"I'm Chiquita the Banana and I've come to say.......'
Chances are, you can sing, or at least hum, a few bars of the famous Chiquita Banana jingle. The song first hit the airwaves in 1944 when Miss Chiquita made her debut. It was written to help teach Americans how to ripen and use bananas, which were, at the time, an exotic tropical fruit. At its peak, the jingle was played 376 times a day on radio stations across the United States. It was one of the most successful commercial jingles of all time.
