No joke, I will never forget the old Sock'em Boppers commercials. I am well past the age group that plays with these things but that theme song is often in my head. What can I say? I watched a ton of TV as a kid and saw that commercial a million times.

They're now known as Socker Boppers and it's just not the same. Remember that video jingle, "it's more fun than a pillow fight?" Those were the days. Alas, everything good must end.

There are a host of other commercials that have left an impression on people. These people shared their thoughts with us after Redditor No-Caterpillar4212 asked the online community,

"What's a commercial you'll never forget?"

"I still giggle..."

"I still giggle at the LifeAlert "I've fallen and I can't get up" commercials. They even have a newer batch of them out."

MisterFives

There's a criminal in my house!

Classic.

"Mr. Owl..."

"Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"

TabithaTwitchet

The world may never know.

"I tried to collect..."

"Yo quiero Taco Bell!"

"I tried to collect all those stuffed Taco Bell dogs they did in promotion around this time. I had almost all of them, but never got my favourite one, with the military hat that says, "Viva gordita!""

F22Android

I remember those! There were so many. I swear, I had at least one or two but they've now been lost to time.

"This is your brain."

"The "This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs" egg commercial."

[deleted]

Oh, but remember the old Rachel Leigh Cook commercial where she destroyed the entire kitchen and not just the egg?

"The dancing old man..."

"The dancing old man from the Six Flags commercials."

DizzyLurking

Now this one really takes me back.

The Venga bus is coming!!!

And everybody's jumping!!!

"That mid 2000s..."

"That mid 2000s Chef Boyardee commercial where the can follows the family and rolls home with them."

Greb-Grebberson

You mean the one where the can is clearly stalking the family and people are too shy to say otherwise?

At least that's how I like to play it out in my head.

"The Wilford Brimley..."

"The Wilford Brimley diabeetus commercial."

rntopspin100

At this point, diabetes should just be called Wilford Brimley syndrome.

"The Budweiser..."

"The Budweiser Wassup Commercial refuses to exit my brain to this day."

Humblebee89

WAZZZUUUUUPPP!? Any kids watching Scary Movie will not understand that reference in the movie sadly.

"Five eight eiiight, two-three hundred... ...Empiiiiire!"

Today!

Good choice. This one is always living rent-free inside my head.

"My bologna has a first name. It's O-s-c-a-r. My bologna has a second name. It's M-a-y-e-r. Oh, I love to eat it every day and if you ask my why, I'll say. Cuz Oscar Mayer has a way with b-o-l-o-g-n-a."

PianoOk6786

This commercial is likely singlehandedly responsible for teaching children how to spell "bologna."

Apologies if you now have relentless commercial jingles rattling inside your brain right now. You should have known we'd awake some long buried childhood memories!

Have some commercials you remember? Feel free to tell us more in the comments below!

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

Life is full of mysteries. And while we seem to be cognizant of many of life's miracles, it's obvious there is still much to discover within the vastness of our existence.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument
Soundtrap/Reddit

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
