Ad jingles and slogans are designed to stick. So if you suddenly find yourself humming “Oh, I’d love to be an Oscar Meyer wiener … ” even though you haven’t seen that commercial for 30 years, or citing an ancient Alka-Seltzer slogan — “Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh, what a relief it is” — you are not alone.
Those old-school commercial jingles and slogans can burrow into your brain more permanently than any algebra formula or state capital list ever could. So, why not embrace it?
Here’s a little quiz to see just how good you are at remembering those ads from the good old days. Are you a slogan smartypants, or did you spend all that TV time outdoors, healthily never watching a commercial in your life? (Even then, you may be surprised … )
For each slogan, identify the product it advertised, then click on to the next slide to see if you’re right. Keep track and give yourself a point for each correct answer — we’ll grade you at the end.
