It feels silly to get so nostalgic over ads, but old commercials are the best. I used to have TV Land as a kid and they would play actual retro commercials during the breaks, like this classic.


It made watching Bewitched and Happy Days feel even more authentic getting to watch period-accurate ads.

I also love it when the Cinema Snob includes old commercials in his videos, and all of the Nostalgia Critic episodes dedicated entirely to commercials.

There's nothing silly about it at all! Like it or not we live in a consumer society; the products we interact with and the story of where they came from is like our own personal story too. Old ads are just as important as family albums in my opinion  :P

Speaking of which I forced my family to watch like 2 hours of compilation ads one Christmas, they got really into it; we started a game where we had to draw our own ads and vote on the best.

Its really interesting if you start looking at ads from the 50s - 60s - 70s - 80s - they change every decade - they get louder and more annoying as they go.. the ones from the 60s you can watch for ages, but by the 80s they are actually really exhausting to watch.

Friend of mine showed me this commercial, I don't think words can really describe it aside from what I can only assume to be what you hear when you watch TV during a bad fever.
