What's your favourite jingle off an ad?

I loved the Mr. Frosty one when I was wee!

"Mr Frosty is such fun!
He makes drinks for everyone!
Turn the handle under his hat,
he makes drinks just like that!"

    I like the hollyoaks adverts at the end of a break and what not.

    "i've got a hair, my first hair"
    "watch out ladies, im coming"

    Summat liek that anyways.

    I used to love the Cadbury's Fruit & Nut advert jingle. It went to the tune of a song from The Nutcracker or The Swan (can never remember). Can't even remember how it goes anymore :( lol

    It's a remix of an old tune isn't it?

    I find most of the Ads on Telly piss me off for some reason

    my favourite advert at the moment is the radio ad for 'frolic' (don't tell the d.o.g.)... but it doesn't have a jingle...

    I asked my parents for one on birthdays and christmas. They probably just liked being mean by not getting me one :(

    My fav is on one of our adds for one of our cell networks - Vodacom -

    It was a 30 sec jingle and everyone loved it so much they made it a song!!

    I don't know the tune but the words are......

    "Seize the moment,
    Seize the day,
    The meters running,
    Don't stand in my way"

    The add, was a lady giving birth(the add was very clean/tastefull) and the baby sood at the end of the table and bunji(sp) jumped using the embilicord as his rope and he was giggling the whole time!!! - VERY CUTE:)

    I think that the words say it all!!!!!!!!

    Used to like the Um Bongo ad years ago - Um Bongo Um Bongo They drink it in the Congo.

    And the Kia Ora ad, the one with the crows or something walking along and one of thems going "I`ll be your dog."

    Oh yeah... and the Hovis one with the boy riding his bike down the big hill, cause it was supposed to be Yorkshire or somewhere but I knew it was Shaftesbury (Dorset) which wasn`t far from where I lived.

    bird's eye potato waffles.

    Ohh anyone remember Wagon Wheels?

    Well they're kind of big and kind of round and there's lots of marshmallow and biscuit to be found under that chocolatey stuff,

    And they're kinda squishy and really squashy and we're sorry if you can't get enough

    You have to eat one piece at a time
    Lalalalalalalalalala
    If there's a bigger bite that can be found
    Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

    Wagon wheels, kind of big and kind of round

    You guys may not have this one, but anyone in the US will appreciate this.

    Ooh, here`s a really ancient one... it`s not exactly a jingle, but there was a ravioli advert when I was about 5 with cowboys in it, and one of them kept yakking, so the other one said "Don`t talk, eat." I bet noone else remembers that.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    The lynx advert too. I sooo love that tune.

    ah, almost equally as annoying as my mum, but at least that advert only had the one line whereas my mum will pick a song, and one random line from said song, then just sing it all day long. :eek2:

    complain to ITC... if they get about 120 people complaining they'll pull it. has been done before. but that advert is part of the reason i don't watch much tv anymore.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    but that requires more effort than just randomly ranting on boards. But hey, it IS annoying,especially now one of my housemates is singing that damn song all day, that advert has ruined my life, i'll sue!
    People rise up, and complain with me, lets get it pulled on the grounds of offensive clothing or something!
    Unite Unite!
    To hell with Stop the War Campaign, Stop that Ad!
    Revolt I say, we refuse to tollerate dodgy costumes and irritating singing on our TV's!
