Max Headroom Pepsi Interview Commercial for Coke (One of the first computer-generated pitchmen, wisecracking Max Headroom (actor Matt Frewer with latex mask) was already a cable talk-show host when Coca-Cola made him their symbol for new Coke. Headroom’s sarcasm and the headlight-bright visuals “broke records for consumer awareness,” said Coke senior VP John Reid. But while people loved Max (he got his own ABC TV show), they hated new Coke. Max’s tag line, “Catch the Wave,” quickly sank)

Name That Tune is an American television music game show. The series features contestants competing to correctly identify songs being played by an on-stage orchestra or band. It premiered on the NBC Radio Network in 1952, where it aired until 1954, and made the move to television in 1953 on the same network. CBS picked up the television series in the summer of 1953 and carried it through 1959. A short-lived revival for syndication followed in 1970 with Richard Hayes as host, but a second revival in 1974 was much more successful. Airing weekly, the 1974 syndicated offering used a new show format and, beginning in 1976, offered a top prize of $100,000 to a lucky champion (after which the show became known as The $100,000 Name That Tune). Tom Kennedy hosted this series, which ran until 1981.
One Step Commercial for Polaroid (In perhaps the most effective teaming of celeb endorsers, James Garner and Mariette Hartley spar, flirt, and joke so convincingly, people thought they were really married. Winner of three Clios, it was a rare campaign praised by feminists for Hartley’s giving-as-good-as-she-got exchanges. The spots ran four years, and people still ask for more, but Garner’s now on to pushing the Nicotrol patch and Hartley’s touting Axid heartburn medication)

Palmolive Dishwashing Liquid Commercials - Ah, remember those old Palmolive ads, featuring the ever-catty Madge the Manicurist (played by actress Jan Miner), who was always telling women how terrible their hands looked?
The answer was always the same — they needed to use Palmolive dish soap — and that advice appeared in print and on television for 27 years. "You're soaking in it."
Here's a vintage commercial for Palmolive dishwashing liquid.Remember, Madge the manicurist says, "Palmolive softens hands while you do dishes." Boy, I sure...
Quisp vs Quake Commercial (Delightful wise-guy wackiness from Jay Ward Productions, which gave us Rocky, Bullwinkle, and the Cap’n Crunch commercials. Also notable for pushing two cereals in one ad: Dithery alien Quisp raves about the product bearing his name (“The biggest-selling cereal from Saturn to Alpha Centauri!”); Quake disagrees. A hard-hatted miner, big of jaw and small of brain (think George of the Jungle), he was voiced by William “Cannon” Conrad)
ShamWoW! Commercial (ShamWow, probably because of the ShamWow Guy, was a success. As soon as the commercial hit television in 2007, people were pulling out their wallets and dropping $19.99, plus shipping and handling, to get their hands on eight of these miracle sponge-towel chimeras. Offer himself claims to have sold "millions" of ShamWows within the first two years they were around, according to MSN. That's pretty impressive, for something your find in a "as seen on TV" aisle of the store)
These days this guy is selling ShamWow masks on YouTube......................

There was another similar product advertised probably in the late 70s or early 80s. I remember because I bought some of them.

Comment: Did you ever notice the kid doesn't have on any clothes?
Smart ass owl.
No, I never noticed that, however he also looks like the former occupant of the White House..............................only not as orange!!
Unsung Hero Commercial (In parts of Asia, Thailand in particular, advertisers seem to be all about making viewers cry. One company, Thai Life Insurance, is especially well-known for producing massively popular, touching commercials. “Unsung Hero,” created by Ogilvy & Mather Bangkok, is just one example, and it’s one of the less depressing ads the brand has put out. The agency says that making people cry isn’t their “main objective.” The purpose is to inspire people to “appreciate the value of life, which is a core value of the brand.” Tears, it seems, are just a common side effect)
The Voice - is an American singing reality competition television series broadcast on NBC. It premiered during the spring television cycle on April 26, 2011. Based on the original The Voice of Holland and part of The Voice franchise, it has aired twenty-one seasons and aims to find unsigned singing talent (solo or duets, professional and amateur) contested by aspiring singers, age 13 or over, drawn from public auditions.
Comment: I had watched every season, every episode of The Voice since it started ... until this season. I watched the first two episodes and just gave up on it. I don't know but it just hasn't been the same for me since Adam Levine left. Yes, Kelly Clarkson is good and gives it right back to Blake Shelton. I can honestly say I like her. But I still miss Adam. And this season with Arial Grande just didn't do it for me. But to be honest, I've gotten that way with TV in general. Some days I don't even turn it on. I quit recording/watching shows I've been watching for years. Including NCIS (Mark Harmon - better known as Gibbs - left) which I had watched for 18 years.
