My Top Six Retro Commercials!

Gentle Reader,

Okay, admit it.  Don't we all really love retro commercials?  Especially ones that we remember from our childhoods?  Don't we all have jingles in our heads for products that were discontinued 20 years ago?  Well, maybe it's just me, but even if so, I'm dragging you all down the rabbit hole of retro madness by presenting my top six super old commercials.  These are all commercials that I remember from my childhood, ranked in order of the total nostalgia points that they rack up with me.

Cherry 7-Up, circa 1988
I posted this one here before.  I hate cherry soda but I'm in love with her eyebrows.

Dimension Shampoo, circa 1985
It's Courtney Cox!  Now remember, girls... Dimension!  That's all you gotta do!

Jordache Jeans, circa 1978
Little bits of the 70's held on until around the time I went to kindergarten.

Whatchamacallit, circa 1987
This still runs in my head whenever I eat a delicious Whatchamacallit.

Miller Lite, circa 1992
This blew my mind at the time.  Still an amazing commercial IMHO!

Stetson, circa 1990
My favorite commercial of all time.  I hoped for years they'd bring it back!

All right, all right, that's enough for now.  But, feel free to share your own favorites if ya got 'em!!!

Ever Yours,

Where I've been...

If you follow this blog then you know that I try to keep it updated every month.  So, where was I in April?  Well, to make a long story short, I am up for what might be the job of a lifetime.  It's been round after round of interviews and tests and now I'm in the final round.  It is my impression that I'm the odds-on favorite although the decision has not yet been made.

The interview process has largely consisted of the creation and delivery of presentations to senior executives regarding hypothetical incentive programs for employees.  I've had to develop these programs, document every step of how I would manage them, and then give a first-class presentation to senior management.  It's been quite stressful and time consuming so all of my other projects are totally on hold for the moment.  So... if you haven't heard from me and are still waiting on things... this is why!

Anyway, I'm hoping that I'll have an answer on all of this within the next 5-10 days.  Wish me luck...!
