Tarryton had the "I'd rather fight than switch" commercial...Benson & Hedges wa - "A silly milli meter longer and "OH, the disadvantages of Benson & Hedges"

Duff, I loved those cigarette commercials. Particularly Benson & Hedges with the tagline, "Would you rather fight than switch?"

Duff, what about the constant ads for Speidel watch bands? It seems very odd that a brand of watch band would be advertised like that/

Nowadays, the commercials on prime-time TV all seem to be for prescription drugs and insurance.  (Okay, I exaggerate.)  I don't miss the cigarette ads, but what happened to the ads for tires, mouthwash, ballpoint pens, gasoline, laundry detergents, wristwatches, toothpaste, bras, razors, chewing gum, breakfast cereal, ketchup, soap, shampoo, batteries... the list goes on.

Wingslinger: it was a national urban coalition psa: http://youtu.be/3eoX1JjoOWA

Does anyone else out there recall an ad or psa that just consisted of dozens of people, including many celebrities, singing along to "Let the Sunshine In?"  I only recall John Wayne and Johnny Carson, but I'm sure there were more I didn't even recognize at nine years old.  1969 or 1970.  Can't find a thing on Youtube or Google.

How about including "Geritol" whose ad was so ubiquitous that Mary Chapin Carpenter wrote a major country hit based on it's tagline "My wife, I think I'll Keep her". The song was 'He Thinks He'll Keep Her'
