Songs from the Eighties That Have Been In Commercials, Products Beginning with D
Well, it was bound to happen, and it has been happening now for a while, Commercials bleeding the memory of the eighties, for music. The first one I remember is "Like A Rock" and then "Born in the USA." Now it's food items. What's next? I'd love to hear your recomendations. Please limit it to TELEVISION Commercials though. Radio stations usually mix in background music with spoken ads by the DJ's and the music tends to be used in both radio and television versions of most Commercials eventually.

A man in the kitchen is eatin DiGiorno Stffed Crust Pizza, sings the song along on the radio (with changed lyrics). The woman comes and tells him, "Don't tell me the pizza delivery guys saw you like that" and the man says, "It's Not Delivery. It's DiGiorno."

Just in case you forget. There's this guy that was been asked if there's anything youthful you want? He answers that he wants his old hair back. Then, cames a fantasy of him with the "Mike Score" hairdo. It's so funny and I think that was the lead singer of the band or some guy.

"FInding Nemo" was a terrific movie, but I'm not sure that the ocean floor was quite the land "Down Under" the band had in mind! On the other hand, what scenes are on land are in and near Sydney Harbor, so I guess it's OK.

Doritos, using Blondie's, "One Way or Another"
A person (it may be a woman) was at a vending machine, and found out there was new Guacamole Doritos (A pop star or something?) and couldn't get it out, even with change, so he shakes it, bangs it, I think the vending machine was unplugged. The announcer says this: New Doritos Guacomole Chips. with guava and a hint of lime, (bite sound) you cant resist the flavor. Gotta Get Doritos. Who knows about those ads that do this? I know, and i got to get the notices that thought it was a woman, pop star, man, etc. But I got to get info from that commercial. So funny. And I can't believe I thought it was funny I know it was a man or something, I believe.
