|Another 70's commercial
||[Aug. 13th, 2007|11:37 pm]
In the summer of.... 1977 (?) My brother and I would watch nonstop TV from when we woke up until our mother yelled us to get outside... around noon. This commercial must have somehow struck me and my brother as especially funny or imitatable, because we re-enacted it over and over in increasingly more dramatic fashion, if you can believe that. And we even tape recorded our performances.
That kitchen! That horrible kitchen!
I have to ask, were the 70's fraught with hard, inedible bread or something? She makes it seem like that was the norm.
I have no idea.
Perhaps they were inventing things, like ads do today too.
Did you and your brother fight over who got to play the mother?
Heh. As I recall, we each did the entire commercial alone. Sort of to see who could do it funnier. My brother almost always won.
Mimicking commercials is fun, I did it as a kid and still do it today, LOL
Hmmm...I don't remember that one.
What product was the commercial for where the disappointed kid ends up saying, "Larry's mom made liver, too..."?
I need a Rodney Alley Rippy icon!
Oh wow, I remember that commercial. My favorite sing-a-long one was the Dr. Pepper "Be a Pepper" one (bound to be on YouTube somewhere.)
The ones I always find the funniest are the old "I'm a Coffee Achiever" ones, may have been from the 80's not the 70's, with people like Jane Curtin and Cicely Tyson pushing coffee.
At the risk of seeming repetitive, I point you at this post
. The linked archive contains several versions of the Dr. Pepper tune.

I never liked Wonder Bread. Wonder Woman, yes... but not Wonder Bread.
Which brother? Me? I don't really even remember that particular commercial. But I do remember being a TV junkie and being yelled at for lal-ee-dalling in front of the TV.
Yes, you! I cannot believe you don't remember the wonder bread commercials: Despondent voice: "Every day I see the same thing! Kids don't always eat what you pack for lunch (sob)." Soft sweet voice: "Mine do..."
