What the oldest commercial jingle you remember?

Hey guys! We watch TV almost every time we have time and chance to do so. And as usual, commercials always take their place on regular programming. Some are cool, some are informative, some are really interesting/attractive, and some are cheesy in a sense. But then, some commercials somehow takes a special place in our memory that we don't forget them even if they aren't aired anymore for a long time. Specifically, their jingles! Oftentimes it's upbeat or something that really catches our attention. It could be a well composed melody or a well done lyrics. Can you remember the very first, or the oldest commercial jingle you still remember? What was it and when did you first hear it? Mine would be Seiko Wallet. Most of my Filipino friends would know this jingle: (This is sang by a guy with a very very low tone of voice) "Seiko Seiko wallet. Ang wallet na maswerte. Balat nito ay genuine. International pa ang mga design. Ang wallet na maswerte, seiko seiko wallet!" translated as (Seiko Seiko wallet. The lucky wallet. It's skin genuine. It has international designs. The lucky wallet. Seiko Seiko wallet)

He he, You made me think there. I don't know if it's the oldest but this one register in mine. The commercial of a Volkswagen beatle, instead of a horse the cowboy is on the beatle to gather up the herd. one would see it jumping around, going in circle unmindful of the terrain to show how tough the beatle was. For the jingle its from the Cole: I wan't to build the world a place in perfect harmony, the teens came from all nation in their national dresses and it has an air balloon or something.

Oh, I haven't seen that commercial. I'm actually imagining the cowboy on top of the beetle. I'll try to look for it in Youtube in a bit. I hope it's there so I could see it. Even my favorite isn't there when I last searched. Maybe I'm searching using the wrong keywords. Although the lyrics are quite familiar. I can somehow hum something. I can vaguely remember it though. Thanks!

Oh, yeah that was actually what I was thinking. He was on top of the car. Silly me. ahahahhaa lol. I tried but I can't find Seiko's commercial on Youtube. Too bad, all I found were spoofs. I'm also looking for the Beetle commercial.

i remember that jingle! i used to sing along with it! ^__^;; the oldest jingle i can remember is an easy one. "Ca....ro...nia, caronia..." and that's all. ^__^;; the "i love you Sabado (Saturday), pati na rin Linggo (and also Sunday)..." is also old but i don't know the words very well. but i'm sure of the catch phrase in the end "panlasang Pilipino, at home sa Jollibee" (Filipino taste is at home in Jollibee).

Yeah! It's one of the most famous commercials! I can still remember tropang trumpo before when they spoofed caronia. Ahhh the good old days. And yeah, the jollibee jingle and the catch phrase. I remember Mikee Cojuangco and her movie about that with Janno. I can't recall zesto that much though. I'm still trying to remember it's jingle. I'll try to look for it as well. Thanks and take care!

Mine is probably a burger king jingle that goes as such "Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce special orders don't upset us all we ask is that you let us serve it your way." I've had that in my head a lot lately, so I hope writing it down here helps get it out of my head! I know it's not exactly originally, but it still got into my head somehow.

I hope that you found it! It's not a new jingle, probably atleast 10 years old, it's still catchy and one that I am sure a lot of people automatically thing of when they hear anything about burger king. As far as jingles that make you want to think about food or products go, Burger King did a great job on that one. Another comercial comes to mind, but this is for Arby's "i'm thinking arby's" the comercials are quite comical.
