    Probably because you said hot dogs, but the first thing that came to mind was:

    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 me why, I'll say, "'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A."

    I remember the commercials from the 60's........the most insidious for me?
    "Winston tastes good, like a ciggarette should!"
    Smoked my first 1 at 9 years old. Got 'HOOKED' for 25 years.
    Hardest habit i ever kicked.
    It seems in my memory that every other commercial in those days was for ciggarettes or beer! The 60's......man.

    A few Coca Cola commercials spring to mind, Other than that "I am stuck on Band-Aid and Band-Aids stuck on me!"

    "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz,
    Oh, what a relief it is!" and Speedy Alka Seltzer


    Let's not forget that slick Gillette commercial with Santa going down hills on an electric razor.

    Yup, the best a man can get. :wink:

    They're not as famous or memorable as the ads previously mentioned, but I used to like the old Mountain Dew commercials from the 70s (and 80s?) featuring young 20-something people frolicking in the countryside. Some of those guys were hot. The one I remember most featured people climbing into a giant inner tube and rolling down a hill into a river or lake.

    I couldn't find that one on YouTube, but I found this montage of old Mountain Dew commercials. The one I like starts at 1:42 and features a guy wearing short shorts swinging across a river on a rope.

    Anyone remember the Colt 45 Malt Liquer guy? They did these cheesey commercials with this guy through the 60's.....
    Some of the foulest shit that was ever canned to drink.
    YouTube - Colt 45 Commercial (1960)

    And then......there was 'Quisp'......possibly the first GAY commercial cartoon actor? YOU decide....
    YouTube - Quisp

    Crackerjacks!
    YouTube - 60s *Cracker Jack* Candy Commercial

    Then there was this psychotic bastard....the hawaiian punch guy:biggrin1:
    YouTube - Hawaiian Punch Commercial 1960's-70's

    First gay commerical "actor' had to be "Twinkles the elephant", who chanted stuff like "nose nose, anything goes, make it grow like a power hose."

    TWINKLES was a cereal.
