    It is a sweet, peaceful, and calming commercial....for a change. For some reason, this adult always has to manage to try to see it when I hear it. I love the way it's done!

The South Lake Union Trolley, or S.L.U.T. for short. They figured out their error and officially named it the Seattle Streetcar, but a coffeeshop here in Seattle created their "Ride the S.L.U.T." shirts that have gotten people to, well, ride the streetcar.
    I'm guessing this counts as a commercial - for my state:

    I live in Salt Lake City. Well, just outside of SL, but anyway...it's common knowledge that Utah is quite conservative. Ultra. Over the top. So when a t-shirt started showing up with SL,UT on the front - it was the buzz. I mean it was a story in the newspaper, etc. Naturally, I thought it was hilarious and put in my order. I use it for my location here on the fort (some forters have said I'd better take a second look at it, just in case I didn't realize where I was saying I'm from). I also ordered one for my daughter - she lives in Ft. Lauderdale, so it won't be quite as funny there - but we both wore them last weekend in Detroit and everyone got a great laugh about it. Of course we had to explain it to some, and others wanted to take their pictures with us.

    It was fun - and harmless, imo. Sorry Utah - I do love ya!

    I have to admit that I noticed your location on your ID and wondered about it, but I'm a live and let live kind of person mostly so... Now to hear the explanation, really made me laugh.

    I also have to stop what I am doing and watch that commercial. I particularly notice the "waterfall" in the background and wonder just how do they do that?

    Do off-the-air commercials count? Because I loved that Folgers jingle by Rockapella.

    As long as we're strolling down memory lane - we used to play a game called cigarette tag. To be safe you had to crouch down and yell the tag line from a tv cigarette ad. And there were a lot to choose from! I bet you young-uns don't remember tv cigarette commercials
    Count your blessings!

    Wha??? There was a time they could advertise cigarettes on TV!?

    Ok, I'm not completely surprised, but I have definitely never seen a TV ad for cigarettes (at least not that I can remember) - only PSAs against them!

    I find myself always singing along with the Dell commercial that has the "Lollipop" music as it's base and, if I'm not singing, I always manage to get that "Pop!" sound in, right on time (with or without my finger in my cheek to help out!)!

    I wish I had a little kid in the house to teach how to do that pop! It's just one of those fun things that you learn along the way.
