You need Uncle Sam

Yoda and I had an afternoon of watching classic TV commercials from our childhoods yesterday. It was sad that we actually still knew all the words to these adverts over thirty years later. But we looked at the screen and sang along and laughed our googlies off. Do any of these ads mean anything special to you?

And under your arms is the top of the world…

For the very first time, a soap with streaks of lime!

Hugo said you go and I said no you go…



  1. The only one I remember was Uncle Sam. We didn’t get KFC until about 1980 in Lismore. And I don’t remember the soap one.

    • Wow, you really missed out! Having only 1 TV channel sucks badly! Still, we had 4 in S.A. and I couldn’t say they were all that good either 😉 I think the KFC advert is an absolute classic – I can’t stop singing the song now!
