What decade is Scarlett living in?


A heavily made-up Scarlett Johanssen teams up with L'Oreal for this HIP(?) commercial for highly pigmented products. She looks like she could be in an ad in 1987 for exactly the same product. Fashion definitely recycles. I could probably find some 20 year old blue eyeshadow in the back of a drawer if I looked hard enough. It probably even sparkles!

Finding love over a bowl of Apple Jacks.





Julia Stiles plays out her mean girl fantasy in this 1994 Apple Jacks cereal commercial. Typical lunchtime junior high snobbery and social misfittery occurs over why the cereal tastes so good. Just like junior high, eh? Julia hasn't changed much... she looks and sounds pretty much the same.

I can slam dunk you Kareem!

 

My, my, we've come a long way since 1978. This Atari commercial featuring Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Carol Channing (quite the odd couple) reminds me how awesome I thought my old-school Atari was. What a difference 3 decades makes, eh?

Burger King Funk-o-rama!

 

I guess you just have to think outside the box once-in-a-while. Otherwise, why in the hell would you be looking for mini-muffins at Burger King? Why would you even want mini muffins from Burger King? Do they have ovens? I thought it was just grills and deep-fryers. Anyways, in this 1989 spot George Clinton spreads his funk for the wee baked goods.

Jack Black vs. the Alligators







This 1982 advertisement for Atari's Pitfall game features Jack Black and his fantastical adventure dodging pitfalls. I loved this game... this was back in the day when I could actually play games other than Karaoke Revolution. ha.

Bright-eyed Sharon



 

 

Sharon Stone is schlepping with her smile in this 1988 Opti-Zyme ad. Whe can help my eyes feel normal again. Maybe that's the only normal thing about Sharon. She looks great in this spot though... even back then she had the crazy eyes.

Take a bath with Sophia Loren







This sexy soap commercial for Lux from 1981 reminds me of my grandmother. I always thought she looked a little like Sophia Loren - and she always smelled like soap and roses. Anyways, this Australian spot is remarkably un-dated... except for the font at the end.

Martini's make you naked!



Theron stars in this uber-stylized 1998 Martini ad from Spain(?). The ad has quite a payoff with Charlize's mini skirt unravelling around those sexy thighs. Charlize looks lovely in this ad - very Marilyn - and makes me wish I could get have those eyelashes... and those thighs for that matter. :)

How much does it cost to get Harrison in a towel??







I wonder how much it cost Kirin Beer to get Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford, to strip down and hallucinate for this 90s Japanese spot? I suppose it takes someone like Harrison to make sweat and beer sound yummy together.

Harrison crashes dinner looking for love in a can....


Harrison Ford gets paid a lot to not even say anything in this 1994 Japanese ad for Kirin Beer. I guess he's got enough clout anywhere in the world to just crash any 'ol private dinner.... and enough clout to be picky about who's worthy of his company. Who does he think he is? Indiana Jones or something?

Flying the friendly skies with Kirin Beer



Even A-listers aren't immune to the lure of an easy buck - they just do it out of the country to keep their credibility. Harrison Ford has been doing all types of ads in Japan for decades - including this 1995 Kirin Lager Beer commercial. I have no idea what's going on, but hey Harry looks good!

Breakfast of Champions

This classic Wheaties ad from 1978 features 1976 Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner back in the days before all his plastic surgery. I'm sure Bruce logged a lot of miles, but I'm not sure I buy that he won the gold cuz of the Wheaties. I've been eating them for years, and can only run a mile in about 15 minutes. What am I missing?

Pringles brings out the D-listers!

There's not much imagination in this short 80s spot for Pringle's Butter & Herb potato chips. Bruce Jenner, Nina Blackwood, Larry Bud Melman, Juice Newton and even Mr. Bill and Fred Flinstone turn out to pig out on their Pringle's. I'm sure I missed a star or two on this one, but I don't know my sports too well. Leave a comment if you know who the mystery Met is.

I bet 3 out of 4 burger lovers wouldn't wear that outfit Elisabeth!

 

Elisabeth Shue wants to make a bet with you - she wants to bet that people want their burger their way. Duh. Don't we want everything our way? In this 1982 Burger King spot, Elisabeth is fresh-faced and perky - and does the only justice that can be done with that brown and orange polyester pantsuit.

Red M&M's are the smartest!

Steven Weber gets schooled by the red and yellow M&M's in this 1996 spot. One of those snarky M&Ms sounds suspiciously like Jon Lovitz. But who cares, I just wish Steven would stop talking with his mouth full... it's distracting.
