Retro Subway (2006)
An actual Subway commercial from 1985 edited for a 2006 reairing. Catchy jingle that disses hamburger & chicken restuarants. 

Kool Aid featuring Bugs Bunny & The Monkees

animated Nike commercial from Spumco ("Ren & Stimpy")

Some long discontinued icon: Swiss Miss lady from the Swiss Miss products


Honestly, can't find an answer though somebody from Flickr  stated that the Swiss Miss dropped the mascot in 1987 and replaced her with a kid (with similar hairdo as the fictional young woman). There hasn't been any mascots for about a decade. Not sure about the 1990's... There's no info about the mascots on Wiki nor the Conagrafood site (which owns Swiss Miss).

1960's version of the Swiss Miss lady, which the drawing is quite pleasing. Wonder if they had models/actresses dressed as her in commercials? Or even throughout the years in the 1970's & '80's.

1972 claymation commercial
Recalled that it aired on TV Land as one of the "Retromercials"...back when the network would show classic commercials
1978 Swiss Miss lite at 0:47
1981 Swiss Miss Pudding Bars (Featuring the Swiss Miss lady as a puppet)



And no she didn't turn into a Spiderman villian for that musical fiasco

You just have to make sure you get that powder mix stirred up really good because it has a tendency to clump. 

Everybody knows about Bit-O-Honey but I remember Bit-O-Chocolate.

I actually liked the Budweiser frogs, though I'm against the product the characters endorsed. Guessing they were discontinued due to appealing to children much like Joe Camel with cigarettes.

Have to admit that Flo the Progressive spokeswoman is actually quite cute...

My all time favorite commercials were the ones for Lite Beer from Miller that had John Madden, Rodney Dangerfield, and many others.  Those were the best and that company dropped the ball when they discontinued them.  They used to always have that fight where they would yell "TASTES GREAT!!!  LESS FILLING!!!"

First batch of commercials from MTV's first hour. Without the music videos, which were actually ads themselves to promote the song/artist.


1:55 The Bulk Binder "If you wanna make history...Stuff It!"

3:22 MTV promo "Television used to be called a vast wasteland", the irony

4:17 Mountain Dew

6:38 Atari

Bizarre commercial from the UK for Muller yogurt that makes no sense whatsoever featuring KITT, Yogi Bear, Muttley, and Mr. Men characters.

I liked this commercial just because I thought the woman on the treadmill was kind of hot.
