Post the first advert strapline

Post the first advert strapline that comes into your head


let's see what penetrates weirdy lawyer pysches!

For the journey

Google tells me this is from that slightly creepy Lloyds TSB ad campaign with the cartoon people on the train.

"Shaves as close as a blade, or your money back"

Bravo dux u r on fire this am.  I trust that was the one with the owls watching the heroic squirrel.  Possibly the best ad ever made



That's what I said, Glaboni

slightly embarrassingly mine was  " there's only one harrods, there's only one sale"

"Washing machines live longer with calgon!"

"Hi! I'm Barry Scott"

"the one with the owls watching the heroic squirrel"

That was deffo my fave!

You do the Shake 'n Vac to put the freshness back

Wonder whether that has anything to do with the fact that I work in a grotty office with 4 other men.

The ever-snappy "£100 reward will be paid by the Carbolic Smoke Ball Company to any person who contracts the increasing epidemic influenza colds, or any disease caused by taking cold, after having used the ball three times daily for two weeks, according to the printed directions supplied with each ball."

I'd have put money on Judo going for "All because the lady liked milk chocolate"

So chocolaty it even turns the milk brown!

(Which I think has been changed because of racist worries)

Vertigo has reminded me of "Re-record, not fade away..."

Dem bones.

Double Diamond works wonders, so drink some today.

Because you're worth it

followed by

Gillette, the best a man can get

followed by

Good things come to those who wait

Lots here

The Hamlet one with Rab C Nesbit actor still makes me smile. 


I cannot get my head around that BT one. chop chop busy busy etc. I remember it. What I find extraordinary is that BT spent money encouraging people to make telephone calls.   it was the run in to privatisation. Get the business up. 

Different times.

Yes, I used to love the Hamlet adverts. My fave was the golfer in the bunker.

The chocolate biccy ads stuck

Call Mr Plow, that's my name. That name again is Mr Plow

I got another one. Possibly the best. 




a mars a day helps you work rest and play

This was mine. Followed by "for mash get smash".

I haven't eaten a mars bar in decades, and have never eaten smash - shows how powerful these little jingle wotsits are. 

"a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat"

You buy one, you get one free.  AH SAID YA BAAAH ONE, YA GET ONE FREE.

Nothing sucks like an Electrolux, closely flowed by "They're great"


and some of the ones above 

Sun packed, fun packed, our son Pat...


Oooooooooooooooh Vitalite!
