Hey everyone :) how go's we? Does anyone remember a commercial from their childhood? I remember a wisk commercial (laundra soap). Saw the commercial when i was about 7. Perhaps some of you remember it? the lady is talking to her washing machine. The machine assumes that its ring around the colour when really its a spaghetti stain? haha probably the only thing i can recite word for word..ok, outside of the canadian anthem ;)

I know some commercials that I saw in telivision. At my age of 8, we don't have any private channels and we had only one, that is "doordharshan" which was broadcasted by the government. In that channel, only two commercials are avialable and they are about one is for body soap and another is for surf.

Surf means not the one that we do in beach. It was detergent. We call it as surf.

I could go on all day on this subject. Commercials exist for the express purpose of making you remember them, and remember them we do. "From your head down to your toes, you've got just one set of permanent clothes..." "The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup..." "Have a Coke and a smile!" "It's a good time for the great taste of McDonald's..." "Have it your way at Burger King..." "Confident, confident, dry and secure, raise your hand, raise your hand if you're Sure!" And who can forget, "My husband, some hot shot! Here's his ancient Chinese secret: Calgon!" or, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!" See? Some of those commercials are 30+ years old and they remain in the brain. Well, I'm off to go squeeze some Charmin. Cheers!

haha, thank you kindly for your entertaining comment :) Funny thing i think, its always the commercials we used to say were 'bad' that we remember. I think of the commercials i remember and, honestly, they were all commercials i could not stand. Trying to remember a line from a commercial i thought wasnt half bad..pppp, no chance, cant think of 2 words from them. I remember that Calgon commercial :) Ancient Chinese Secret Huh?
