10 Memorable TV Commercials

Everyone loves to chill out and watch some TV, but commercials can be a drag. Every once in a while, though, a commercial comes around that makes me laugh or otherwise entertains me (sometimes more than the program I’m watching). When that happens, I find myself remembering the commercial, talking about it later, and even ‘shushing’ people when it comes on again. This kind of “top of mind advertising” is goal of most commercials (or at least it should be). Being remembered (and even talked about) does more for promoting a brand than a bland direct sell ad ever will.

Here are 10 commercials (new and old) that fit in this category and I have never forgotten.  If I missed your favorite, let me know what it is in the comments!

1 – Wheres the Beef?! – Wendy’s

2 – Avoid the Noid – Domino’s

3 – Wassup – Budweiser

4 – So Easy a Caveman Could Do It

5 – They’re Grrrrreat! – Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes

6 – Mikey Likes It – Life

7 – There’s No Wrong Way to Eat a Reese’s – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

8 – They Just Keep Going & Going – Energizer

9 – I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up! – Life Call

10 – This is Your Brain – Anti-Drug PSA

    So glad you enjoyed it! There are a ton more worth mentioning, like my personal favorite…the “Crossfire” game commercial from the 1980s. It’s funny how some commercials stick with you and others just get muted! Haha! :)
