Classic TV Commercials

-Sam H

Commercials tell a story to promote and sell products. Commercials have dialogues and jingles. For example, this Connect Four commercial from 1985 shows that the classic game can be for kids of all ages.

Sometimes products were often advertised by a famous celebrity. For example, Florence Henderson was the spokeswoman for Wesson cooking oil from the mid-70s to mid-90s. Here is a Wesson commercial starring Henderson from 1988.

Two of our older instructors, Ed of wood and Gloria of jewelry were born in the mid-40s. Here’s an example of a Cheerios commercial that their generation grew up with.

You can find many classic commercials on youtube. It’s fun to see what was shown on tv before our time.
