1980'S PSA ANTI DRUG COMMERCIAL HAPPY BIRTHDAY
It started like someone above said with a young woman and it would start off singing the happy birthday song and then it would start singing How old are you now and the music was distorted and her face got older and older until they just threw a sheet over her. That commercial scared me so bad that everytime it came on I would hide my head and cover my ears and sing loudly until it went off. It came on in the 1980's and I have searched the internet for it and can't find it. That is the scariest thing I have ever saw on TV, and I still don't think I could watch it to this day and I'm 25 years old now.
409, grease cleaner, yeah, it's the one 409, this cleaner puts grease on the run 409, 409, put grease on the run
Flip Wilson was at a roller disco rink advertising 7-up in 1981 wearing a shiny jacket. It aired on TVland retromercials.
At the beginning it's a dry, hot, miserable day in a city somewhere and then you see a woman lying on the beach with sunglasses on and then she opens a can of 7-Up in slow-mo and then it starts raining-not storming, just like a light rain, just enough to cool everything down-and then you see scenes of everybody in the city happy, laughing, and sometimes dancing in the rain, each with a can or bottle of 7-Up in hand and the entire time the theme is being sung by some guy, "Feels So Good Comin' Down!" and at the end all you see is a can of regular 7-Up and a can of diet 7-Up and at the bottom you see a caption that says "Feels So Good Comin' Down!" It aired in '86, I think.
There was a gorgoeus guy driving in a hot car at full speed. He gets pulled over by the police. The officers were reading his rights. The female officer starts checking him out, grinning at him as she takes of her hat and goes up to the guy. Then she gets in the car with him! The other police officers were flabbergasted! The theme song throughout the commercial was ' Are You Up For It '
This was a cinnamon-flavored soda that wasn't around for very long... they used the Steppenwolf song "Wild Thing" as a jingle.
In late November each year, there was always a commercial played that ushered in the holiday season: the dancing 7-up snowman. From what I can remember, a little boy looks outside and sees a sad snowman, all alone. He creeps outside and gives him a 7-up, and the snowman drinks it and dances around. It's been about four years since I've seen this, and it doesn't feel like Christmas without it.
The Jamaican guy saying "crisp and clean and no caffeine"
7Up was the "uncola" I recall the commercials ( whole bunch of them ) with a heavyset balding man ( not Kojack ) And he would laugh & sip the beverage & say "7up; the un-cola....ah ha ahhhhh"
Never had it, never will hahahaha.
With those little red circles with sunglasses who would push the drink towards someone then disapear onto the can or bottle when they came.
i believe it was alaska airlines. but it was showing you how much better they are compared to other airlines by parodying some other bad airline called "sky high airlines" and i remember the jingle was "sky high airlines, sky high airlines.." it was really funny...

It was the bird from cocoa puffs standing in front of two doors that led to a choclate mind. And he had to open the right door to lead to something because there was some kind of earthquake that was in closing him.so the commercial ends with him thinking nervously on which door to open.

There was a boy who believed that santa would get him a puppy for christmas.

public service announcement draggin' lady
When I want to make my family laugh, I sing this commercial, I think it was supposed to make people want to quit smoking. It had a lady walking around in a cheesey red outfit. The song went "when you walk in a room, no you cant stand that fume, draggin lady/ tell me baby tell me, why you smoke that trash (why girl?)/ everybody's sayin' you ain't got no class/ can't you see what you are, you're a drag yes you are/ a message to you and me from the American Cancer Society/ don't be a draggin' lady!"

Two old ladies talking to one another, and in the background you see a man on a roof struggling to install a satallite dish etc. This set of animated adverts were wonderful
It was probably around..1986-1987ish... somewhere in there.. and the little red circle used to like come alive. He was the little 7-UP circle.. and there was a Christmas commercial where Santa left a fire truck on the roof and the little 7-up circles go get and drive it in the the living room and the happy little boy gets it.
"Don't give me that so-so soda, that same old cola. I wanna rock-n-rolla. I wanna pop (pop, pop)...I wanna Shasta."
I can't remember the exact commercial,but I sure remember the song."when you eat your smarties, do you eat the red ones last,do you suck them very slowly,or crunch them very fast".....(i can't remember this part)....but then it kinda shouts"when you eat your smarties,do you eat the red ones last?"If anyone knows those missing words please fill them in.
The missing portion of the smarties song is "...eat that candy coated chocolate, now tell me when I ask!"

She spots his truck, which is 100 yards from the store, and yells, "There he is!" and runs to him with her arms in the air.

Remember the slogan "I love what you do for me...Toyota!" It showed people getting excited over their Toyota. I believe this lasted throughout much of the nineties, but began in the late eighties (around 1989 maybe).
