Let these distilled doses of 1990s advertising take you back to a simpler time, when pizza came on a bagel and hair came in a can.
The field of advertising is designed to plant its simple ideas deep inside your subconscious.
As a result, your brain is overflowing with jingles, images, and snippets of commercial dialogue that you absorbed like a sponge through the hundreds of hours of TV you watched in your childhood.
While this has probably crowded out useful knowledge and skills like your CPR training, or the name of that cousin you see every few years, it does have the bonus of tapping straight into nostalgia. Short of the smell of your childhood home, there is probably nothing better than an old commercial to transport you back in time, away from the horrors and crises of the present.
With that in mind, let's not waste any more time on the intro—because you really need this right now.
Baby Bottle Pop
The company behind Baby Bottle Pop candy didn't want to waste your time, so they crafted a short, 15-second ad so infuriatingly infectious that you will never get it out of your head as long as you live. Do not click the play button unless you want "just lick the pop, dip it, and shake it... then lick it again!" playing on a loop in your skull for the next 4-400 hours.
Just be thankful we didn't include the Kars 4 Kids commercial.
Now don't you feel like a kid again? And don't you want to buy all that stuff?
