Does anyone remember those old Quizno's commercials?
The ones that had the demented rat things?
Those were the best.

Does anyone else have some old commercials they miss? xD

Hmmm....have to give that some thought...

I know some I was glad to see gone! The laundry detergent ads where they kept saying, "ring around the collar!" I got so sick of hearing it! They were before the days of mute buttons on remotes - you had to get up and turn the volume down or else endure it.:rolleyes:

I loved the Quizno's commercial with the people dressed up as peppers and stuff dancing around in the oven to salsa music (I think). I only aired a couple times, years ago when Quiznos first came here. I miss that one.

Otherwise I hate commercials, which is why I bought a PVR :D

I think she's referring to these:

YouTube - Quizno's

YouTube - Quiznos Sponge Monkey Commercial #2 - Toasty

Which stem from this original:

YouTube - We like the moon

I liked Quiznos better after seeing these. The corporate culture that could approve of this appeals to me. It was also cool that the creator got a bit of cash for his weird creation.

Yeah, I know. Not as much of a fan of those, but they're easier to find...I can't find the one I'm talking about :/

Pramrider will probably remember this one -

If it's got Libby's Libby's Libby's
on the label label label
then you'll like it like it like it like it
on your table table table! That's all!

The little girl in this commercial was actually a student of mine in the Army. She is now in her late 30's and was a kindergarten teacher before deciding she wanted to do "something different" and joined the Army. She said she had done several takes of the commercial before the one shown was taped, and that the "That's all" part at the end was her addition because she didn't want to do any more takes. The producers liked it so much they left it in and it became a classic.

I'm a kid of the late 80's and 90's I loved a lot of commercials/advertising campaigns. Some of the ones I miss are:

-The Noid (Dominos)
-The Taco Bell Chihuahua
-Pizza Face & Dr. Steve (Pizza Hut)
-The Micro-Machines Man
-What do you want on your Tombstone? (Tombstone Pizzas)
-Cookie Crook, Chip the Cookie Hound, and Officer Crumb (Cookie Crisp)
-The Craver (Honeycomb)
-Ricola commercials with the alpine horn
-The Spot (7Up)
-Energizer Bunny


I loved a lot of these types of commercials and characters.

Pramrider...remember "that's a some meat a ball? I as a young kid remember the dancing cigarettes, and the one where they told the watcher "nine out of ten doctors say that smoking is good for your health"! I miss the insurance commercial where there's this blond haired kid and he's invented a robot. At first the parents think it's cute, until the robot starts firing at everything with its laser. That one was pretty funny.

Yes, I remember that one too, if it's the one where the guy kept doing commercial takes and one time burned his mouth on a too hot meatball.:D

Another funny one I recall now was about some product for foot odor control. In the one scene the guy's dog brings him his slippers. Soon as the guy took off his shoes the dog passed out from the smell.:laugh:

I miss the Quaker chewy granola bars ads from the late '90s. They featured a series of kids saying stuff like "Dad's lazy," "he lost his paycheck at the racetrack," "the neighbors are hillbillies" etc, and then at the end "Kids talking too much? Give them a chewy granola bar." There's a similar one on youtube from the same series of ads, but it's not as good.

Then there was also the commercial from the same era for the Nintendo 64 Super Smash Bros. game, which I just found on youtube: YouTube - Super Smash Bros. [N64] commercial: Happy Together (1999)

I also miss all the old pull-ups ads from the late 80's and early 90's, the "Mommy, wow! I'm a big kid now" ones, but many of those are also on youtube.

I also really liked a commercial from maybe about 1993 where a bunch of women take a "diet Coke break" at work to watch some sexy construction workers on the street while this song "I just want to make love to you" plays.

It's fun to watch old commercials and suddenly realize you remember it from when you were like 7 or 8.
