I remember only a couple of commercials from my childhood: The Oscar Mayer commercials, The Coca Cola commercials with the teach the world to sing song and the Where’s the Beef commercials! As I grew older my favorite commercials were the Beer company commercials with the talking lizards and frogs! I also used to love the Coke commercials with the cute little polar bears. My favorites now are the Cox Cable company commercials with the little blue and white digital guys!
However, in the last few years there have been some pretty stupid commercials! A few of them within the last few years I am not even sure what the commercials were for! I don’t understand if they were for a service, a product, for me to do something or not to do something? I just don’t know!!
Then there are the current crop of commercials that just seem to think the American public is composed of people too stupid to come in out of the rain! For instance, the commercial for the dishwasher pacs that displays a disclaimer that the commercial is a dramatization when it shows a construction crew in the dishwasher cleaning the dishes! Really!! A dramatization!! Who would think that!!
