    Today I was washing the dishes and for some strange reason the 'Palmolive' advert from years ago popped into my head. YOu know the one "Palmolive is mild on your hands while you do dishes!" Hmmm.....then I was led to 'Jiff' "First of it's kind and still the best was to buy 2 litres of dish washing detergent. Easy to take home, easy to throw away and easy on my purse, and I'm Sticking to it" How weird was that I thought to myself, how weird that these adds got stuck in my memory. I started to remember alot of other horrible adverts from my past, Louie the Fly, the old Colgate and the 'It gets in, like liquid into this chalk'. I began to wonder who else remembered adds and whether that reflects on either our minds or the success of the original campaign?

    I think to much often.....but there have been a few tv commercials especially that have stuck in my mind. But right now, watching Idol, I think this gorilla playing drums to Phil Collins 'In the Air' has got me confused....what does a gorilla playing the drums have to do with Chocolate?? Weird...

    "Be the first to say 'Do you need a hand?'" catchy tune. lol.

    And the muppet type one where the guy says "I've been mortally wounded!" I think it was a Christian Television Association one.

    I get strange looks because I remember the name of the lady in the Colgate ads....Mrs. Marsh!

    Norm & the "Life.Be in it" ads
    Tim Shaw selling knives "but wait, there's more"
    the old Cunno ads with the cartoon band singing
    "Wash your hands Jeffery! With the Solvol Jeffery!"

    Wasn't 'real' muppets like Jim Henson style, just some Aussie attempt. Still a weird ad. It had a punk puppet help some 'normal' puppet after he'd been beaten up?

    As my maiden name was Jeffery, I hated the last one with a passion!!! And I loved the Life be in it adds...

    "And they saw a FROG! But it, hopped away. And none of them knew what they'd been doing, they'd be exercising!"


    I have a vague recollection Merrick now you describe it, but not as clear as others.

    Ok I'll set the scene

    Deep outer space a glipse on the moon's surface there's crators and of course the infamous moon dust!!!!! the the star's are bordering in the distance as far as the human eye can can see surrounding the space craft. Close up of the stairs that stretch on to the moons surface and then the astronauts boot comes down onto the step as if in slow motion one after the other until.... It apears to be walking on the surface in that famous hop skip and jump we all know!!!! it stops and gaze's in to the deep outer space and just for a silent moment it feels that even time has stopped..........it moves one arm ever so slowly to its right leg and then WOOOSHHH a cover slides open revealing an odd object a pack of............
