My old MD was still saying this in 2008 FYI
if it's a friend of hers calling. She should be young enough to know better.
going to start doing this.
it's kind of endearing
(the cunt) (i added the last bit in brackets myself)
(It isn't though)
where they basically said you can order the thing you want. Like if you dont want onions that is allowed. big woop.
sounds really bitter as well - 'you want a plain bun? no sesame seeds? Fine, have it your way' *gobs in milkshake*
Oh look it's Duncan Goodhew
Why the fuck would someone do that?
but I have known someone to order a cheeseburger without the burger.
So a cheese and gherkin sandwich essentially.
they wanted a Big mac but without the meat.
you're gonna get thirsty
It's John Barnes in an England shirt. Shouldn't that be 'after 45 minutes of sheer ineptitude, you're gonna get subbed'
and do it at the right time
It gets to your thirst, fast.
but there was a time during 1990 when the words "Ninety minutes of sheer hell" accounted for 40% of my vocabulary so that's the bit I remember.
it's isotonic, which means it's in balane with your body fluids!
the first 30 or 40 times I saw it.
FIFTY. FIFTY. FIFTY.
AS DO YOU.
(I get this song in my head every year, on, or around, the dates of Hanukkah)
This thread needs more like this
I thought maybe it was from the mid-to-late 90s when I didn't watch TV but some comments there say 1990, when I pretty much never turned the thing off!
Hofmeister, no thanks.
I show that ad.
They showed it in the mid break of Corrie for a week. 3 slots
They reached 50% of the population with 3 oppotunities to see.
To do that now, you would need to spend c.£750k, with 40 slots on 11 channels.
Further more, they won an award for best ad ever. Hands up if you've even seen it before
People fucking lap it up
I mean, I don't know how successful it was but I'm guessing it failed to actual generate a lot of sales given Hoffmeister's not a fondly remembered beer or even about.
So are you saying it did all the right things but failed?
And I've seen it before for sure but I'm old.
(Incidentally wasn't it out in the 80s when Corrie was still only on twice a week?)
TRRRRRRI I I O
I WANT A TRIO AND I WANT ONE NOW
BODYFORRRRMED FOR YOUUUUU
Way down deep in the middle of the Congo,
A hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango.
He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango.
The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo"
Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.
The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin.
The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.
So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle,
They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!
I met the man who wrote the Um Bongo jingle
A great day that was
Something with a 'K' in the title, I think.
Better than 99% of all poetry in my eyes. And I'm not even joking.
Esp. when compared to that horiffic Frosties one from a could of years back. The one with the singing kid who bacame a national hate figure.
B A C, Windows, doors-and conserv-at-ries
its the tune that has stuck by the way
AT THE LINK IT'S EASY

For a chocolate chew!

(But if they do, do.)
It's called Toys R Us, Toys R Us, TOYS R US.
*of toys, presumably. Earlier in the jingle, it made clear that there is a magical place (we're all going there), with "toys in their millions" all under one roof. So yeah, that.
talk to Tem-po!
They really had us with that one.
Holiday refreshment's what we bring

There's no Km-parison
That's for us children of the 80s
Leave it, comfortably, elegantly, leave it, leave it. Just fucking leave it alright, we've all had a drink and it's not worth it.
Together with the "Don Amott - King of Caravans" jingle I think that's one for Midlands people, even though we got the TV advert in Bucks every few minutes for some reason. When I moved to Brum 20 years later I was very excited to see the fabled Lee Longlands that I had heard so much about as a youth.
"SEGA. It takes AGES to be this good"
"Sega does what Nintendon't"
"Dreamcast. Up to 6 billion players"
Fucking belter, the lot of them.
To be this good takes AGES.
To be this good takes SEGA.
right outside Sega UK's HQ, for the CD32:
To be this good will take SEGA AGES.
