Reading that other commercials thread made me think of quite a few commercials from my constant tv watching days that I don’t see anymore.
First, I miss the Carvel ads. They don’t have Carvel stores in California, so I guess thats why there is no ads. Cookie Puss, where are you?
Time to Make the Donuts. I miss the cute old guy. Do they still make those commercials?
An old commercial for channel 6 news. It would travel their news van around the city as if it were filmed by a guy taking his family to see the sites. Every time the van went by you heard a funny voice say “There goes that news van again.”
Krass Brothers. There was this clothing store on South Street that every Saturday morning during cartoons would advertise. God knows who thought that was a good target audience, but it was on for years, so it must have worked. Anyway, this old guy would come on and yell about the great clothes they had at his store, then a gaggle of females would come out and rip his clothes off.
Last, but surely not least. Ok, I don’t remember the name of the store. But, it was a commercial for a furniture store. Every commercial would feature this old guy among a bunch of people in different circumstances. Then there would be a flash and everyone would be gone except for the old guy. He would look around and say “Hey, where did every body go?” Then the voice over guy would say they went to Bekins, or whatever the name of the store was. That was my favorite.
