For the month of September, we’re going to reminiscence on some favorite TV shows, movies, etc. In today’s entry we’re looking at five of my favorite classic commercials from the 90’s.
5. Miss Cleo
Before her business went down in flames, Miss Cleo reigned supreme on the tube. Her catchphrase “Call me now” remains one of the most well known in all of TV land.
4. Pepsi Cola
Not to be outdone by its sibling, Pepsi Cola also had some memorable commercials to promote it. Not only were the Pepsi Girl commercials cute, they also had a musical component, namely the girl belting out Aretha Franklin. Fun fact: Did you know that the young lady featured in these commercials is Hallie Eisenberg, Jessie Eisenberg’s (a.k.a. Lex Luthor) sister? It goes without saying, that in the 90s, Pepsi outdid itself with its commercials.
3. Diet Pepsi
You got the right one baby...uh huh.
That catchphrase made famous by the late Ray Charles and his lady singers, made a smooth commercial. There was always a brilliant spin on how it was said as each new entry in the franchise showed up on our TV screens.
2. Budweiser Wassup!
Budweiser has had a lot of great commercials, but the Wassup! ones are some of the funniest and most memorable. The way this group of friends said “Wassup!” as they held their beer made the catchphrase a part of pop culture.
1. Got Milk?
The very first of the Got Milk? commercials was not only funny but also a lesson in U.S. history. I’ve always remember the answer to the question posed in the commercial . It also taught viewers the importance of having a glass of milk nearby!
Needless to say, watching TV during the 90’s was mostly fun. In addition to having some of the greatest television shows of all time, we also had some of the best commercials. Click here to see more memorable commercials from the 90’s.
