People Explain Which Commercials They'll Never Forget

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."

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!

The internet is so fascinating.

And messy.

Thanks to YouTube and TikTok, so many hours can be spent lost in the world of video.

You pick a simple topic or name to check, and then it's tomorrow... and you've binged every army family reunion story.

And so much time to waste, depending on your keystroke choices.

CW: Graphic imagery and accidents.

No one leaves this life without scars.

We witness so many awful things on a daily basis.

How could we not be followed by it all?

Messed up things are just part of the deal of living I guess.

One minute you're walking along on a bright sunny day, then boom, you're a witness to a murder.

Or some such craziness.

That's why I stay home a lot.

Let's just be honest: the dating scene can be rough, especially when you're not sure if that person likes you back or not.

Some people, however, are very comfortable with their dating histories and believe there's a certain "cheat code" to confirming if someone is interested.

But for those of us who have always been bad at flirting and consider ourselves "oblivious" to other people's advances and compliments, maybe there could be some hope for us after all with these tips.

Anyone with any amount of dating experience knows at least a few things that they love in a relationship and a few things they find unsavory.

Just like discovering our boundaries and what qualifies as a relationship deal breaker, most of us generally have a few rules that we tend to live by in every relationship, whether it's romantic, platonic, or professional.
