Good morning, Rat Rock Nation!   We were discussing old commercials on the air somehow…and I thought I’d make a list!   We’re looking at the Top 11 Commercials of the 1980’s!   Enjoy!

  • Miller Lite Tastes Great! No, It's Less Filling!

    Miller Lite’s series of “Tastes Great Vs. Less Filling” put celebs and athletes of the times against each other as they debated this pivotal American issue.

  • Wendy's: Where's The Beef?

    At one point…the old lady in these Wendy’s commercials was the most famous person on Earth.

  • McDonald's Hamburglar!

    I don’t know why McDonald’s stopped with these type of ads…it’s like they had their own cinematic universe!   And the Hamburglar ruled!

  • Good ol' Folgers

    Ahhhh, Folgers.   Always good to start your day with a nice cup of coffee in the U.S. of A. Especially if you live near horses.

  • Hungry, Hungry Hippo!

    If you were a kid in the ’80’s, you would know that Hungry, Hungry Hippo is the most intense game…hell…the most intense EXPERIENCE…in the world.

  • Kool-Aid Man!

    Kool-Aid Man was like a bad acid trip come to life.   Better drink your fruit punch, kids…or Kool-Aid Man will haunt your dreams.

  • Juicy Fruit: The Taste Is Gonna Move Ya!

    Chewing Juicy Fruit was not simply enjoying some gum.   According to this commercial, chewing Juicy Fruit is like inhaling laughing gas.   These people look nuts.

  • Zestfully Clean

    It’s simply not pragmatic nor safe to put a shower head in your recording studio.   Electrocution is likely.

  • Right Guard:

    Anything besides Right Guard would be so…uncivilized.

  • Do You Have Any Grey Poupon?

    Apparently only really, really rich people like Grey Poupon.

  • Coke Is It!

    I’m not sure if these guys are drinking Coke or inhaling steroids but the effects seem similar.
