Advertising jingles. Which ones stick in your head? I have that annoying 1877 Kars for Kids one stuck in my head today. My kids remember commercials from Montreal – with the right phone numbers – Monsieur Renove, 274 1159. I can bet you my mother remembers commercials (or adverts as we call them) from back when she was younger.

What commercials stick in your head and why – is it the jingle or the product or the cute baby advertising it?

    Melrose – five – five- three – hundred. (a telephone number).

    Do you know exactly how to eat an Oreo? Well, to do it, you unscrew it, very fast! Because a kid’ll eat the middle of an Oreo first, and save the chocolate cookie outside for last!
