TV commercials are fun to watch. They were a source of amusement as early as I could sit up in a crib, then became even more so when I joined the advertising industry after college. I got a chance to write about old TV commercials at The Philippine Online Chronicles and had a blast doing so. (Link: Remembering those old TV ads)
Of course old is relative. In this case, it means ads that came out in the ’80s and ’90s. Yes, that can already be labeled as OLD!
Aside from the TV commercials I wrote about in the article, there are many more that have made a strong mark on my memory. Let me know if you remember any of these ads! Ah, old commercials, how you entertain us so.
“I’m getting ready, getting ready…” (MILO)
This ad really worked for me. I did drink quite a lot of Milo back then.
TV ads I can’t find online that I sure would love to see again — RA Homevision, Goya Chocolate Factory, Knorr Real Chinese Soup (Just add one egg… GOODAH!), Electrolux (I’m gonna knock on your door, ring on your bell, knock on your window too…), Johnson’s Wax (Tumatagaaaaal!), Close-up with Jaime Garchitorena’s “Just a smile away”.
Do any of these ring a bell? If yes, then… you’re just as old as I am give a take a few years. Hahaha!
I hope you enjoyed the show! 😀
