I've been watching a tape I made back in 1998 (yeah, almost 10 years ago). Mostly, I've been fast forwarding through the commercials, but not all of them. It is really interesting what commercials just aren't on anymore (or not in such frequency).

- MCI (for internet!)
- 10-10-321
- Commercials selling CD compilations (in particular the first "pure moods" CD!)
- Dodge Commercials with Edward Herrmann


Also, it's interesting how some advertisements do include a URL, they don't even say it once. They just show it down the bottom of the screen at the very end of the commercial.

I remember when they first started using URLs in commercials. I'd yell at the TV all the time because it was a while before I finally got a computer. Now you can't even get through a commercial without seeing/hearing a URL. I feel bad for people who still don't have a computer. Must be frustrating (and unfair) to hear "Log on now to get a discount!"

Pure Moods! I love those commercials.

Oh, man. Those 10-10-321 commercials were so annoying! But never as annoying as the 800-588-2300 Empiiiiiiiire commercials.

Wow, Google knows I talked about Edward Herrmann... freaky. I just saw him in something new recently (I forget what) and it really shocked me how old he looks. I guess I am just used to seeing him on the early years of Gilmore Girls. Or maybe it was the facial hair that aged him. hm.

Anyway, thanks for popping by!

Haha, your llama icon is cute!

Did you see him on Grey's Anatomy? I'm not a fan of the beard but I think it's better than just a mustache (which I can't stand). Perhaps if the beard wasn't white, lol!

Google Alerts should be called Google Stalker, maybe. ;-)
