When I was younger I thought the Army commercial with the logo "Be all you can be" actually said "Be a chimpanzee" I never understood it =D

When I was younger, I used to beleive that every time a commercial came on, it was acted right there, live. So I felt very bad for the actors because they would act the same commercial over and over again every time it came on. I felt especially bad for the ones who acted in the commercials that rerun again and again and again...

I used to believe that the wing on the Goodyear logo was of a hand pointing to the right. This was when I saw it from far away.

When I was younger, I thought that every television show was filmed live and that commercials were so the people could stop to use the bathroom.

When I was a child, I used to believe that if you cut a person in a magazine with your scissors, it would actually hurt them.

When I was little I was terrified of a commercial with dancing pants. Every time the commercial would come on my mom would act like she was calling the cable company to tell them to quit airing it. That would work until the commercial came on again, and then she'd have to "get angry" at them for not listening to her the first time.

I wanted Sweet Pickles books since I watched the ad on TV and hoped to get the bus to deliver them to me. But I lived overseas at the time. So I was hoping that when we went on a trip to the USA that I could have them delivered to the motel we were staying in.

About 20 years later I ended up finally finding them in a classroom and library! And I still thought they were cool

when i was little i thought that Sears commercial with the slogan "We'll do your homework for you" was literal, so i called the 1-800 number and asked the customer service lady questions on addition and subtraction from my 3rd grade homework worksheet! LoL, she was really nice about to too!

You know how on Jeopardy there was always these things supporting the program that Alex Trebek just /had/ to tell you about? When he said "brought to you by" I thought he said somethnig that sounded like "brochuby" so it was like a question like "Brochuby Zest bath soap?" I assumed he was trying to hypnotise me into buying it... I always told him that I only got 2 dollars for allowance (I was 5) and that wasn't enough to buy a huge thing of soap.

I used to believe that all TV commercials were live, and that it was their job to sit and do commercial on cue all day. I was so amazed at how precise they did it each time, it was almost as if it were pre-recorded or something???
haha..

I remember seeing my first Mr. Clean commercial; a woman mopping the floor with Mr. Clean floor cleaner and he appears on her freshly mopped floor. As a small child I believed if I used this product he would appear. When at the store with my mom, I would ask her if we could by some so I could see him but she would tell me it was just way to expensive for her to buy.

I used to think that adverts were what adults liked to watch most on TV. I thought that on cable there were whole channels with nothing but adverts and grown ups would love watching it all day

When I was five, the television advertisement for one brand of sanitary napkin would feature models wearing polka dotted dresses. I truly believed that "Carefree" was actually clothes that are sold in the local grocery stores and asked my mom to buy me carefree clothes for my birthday.

There was a commercial on TV for a local car dealership with the jingle, "If you're looking for a deal, go see Cal." I believed it was "If you're looking for a deal, pussy cow," and I would sing it out loud without ever getting corrected.

I used to belive that all television was live. I used to try and figure out how every commercial was exactly the same. Nobody ever droped a ball or flubbed a line. It was really confusing if I flipped through the channels quickly and saw the same commercial on two different stations at the same time. I spent days trying to figure that out.

When I was younger, I always believed that everything on TV was live. So one day I wanted to show off a little how observant I was, and casually told my brother, "That kid sure is lucky to be able to drink chocolate milk every day." And he said, "No..." to which I replied, quite sheepishly and quickly, "Oh, um, yeah." Even though I didn't totally understand.

when i was little (about 6) i thought that ad breaks were so the writers of the show had time to think up what came next.
i asked mum and she said it was true

When I was a child there was an advertisement on TV where they tried to sell a remedy against lice, rash and other things like that. They repeated the advertisement so many times that I learnt it by heart. I repeated the words of the advertiser lots of times before someone explained me what "pubis lice" meant.
