Best Television Commercial Jingles
Written by The Dishmaster, Posted in Uncategorized
DOUBLEMINT GUM — I used to chew this gum, while imagining myself as a blonde twin riding a double-bicycle while flashing my pearly white teeth. Then I got a cavity, and the fantasy was over.
TOYS R US – Remember the days when you would walk into Toys R Us and there was an entire wall of cute toys, and you wanted every single one. Now I walk into Toys R Us and I’m flooded with strange pool toys. Where’s my damn silly putty?!
MENTOS – I used to ask my mother for gum, and she’d say, I don’t have gum, but I have Mentos. To this day, I have no idea what Mentos is. Is it a gum or is it a mint? Perhaps someone could explain it to me.
BAND AID — This commercial is fortunately still around. The jingle was written by Barry Manilow, and he probably could have retired from this commercial money alone.
BIG RED — Oh how I loved Big Red. At least for the two minutes of flavor. Good enough, though.
CHILI’S BABY BACK RIBS – I’ve never liked Chili’s, but I certainly liked this commercial. In fact, since I began writing this post, I can’t get the jingle out of my head. Dammit!
1-800-MATTRESS — This commercial plagued me for most of my childhood. I remember thinking, “why do they leave off the extra ‘S?’ Could they not have thought of a better jingle that incorporated the last ‘S?'” When I brought this up to my friends, they looked at me, puzzled, and said, “who cares?! Don’t you have more important things to worry about?” The answer is no. I’m a crazy lunatic that thinks about mattress commercials. Hence, this post.
