Whenever I saw the "cover the earth" Sherwin-Williams logo. I thought it was a ladybug. I don't know why...
There was an advert for some medicated capsule for sore throats or something which had the slogan "Suck 'em and see!". For years I thought the voiceover was saying 'Cychoman C', which I believed to be an important mineral or something like Vitamin C. Oh how my sister laughed at me.
When I was little, there was an advert on the telly for Chambourcy chocolate mousse, that had the slogan "Sh! Don't tell the children!" to suggest that it was so yummy that they'd eat it all before you got a chance to have any.
My sister thought that adverts were subject to the watershed like TV programmes, and believed that the Chambourcy advert had slipped through mistakenly when it was aired before 8pm!
When I was little Ban deodorant just had came on the market and had a catchy tune"Ban takes the worry outta being close" Well I listened and went running into the kitchen where I told Mom"Beans take the worry outta being close" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought when a movie was shown, with ad breaks and stuff, all the actors took a break, so I always wondered what they were doing when there was a criminal and a good guy....i figured they would go to opposite sides of the rooms while being restrained by others.
I thot that people on billboards and signs and stuff were real people trapped forever behind a wall, i always felt sad for them, and tried feeding them constantly. THis belief ended last summer when I was corrected...oops.
Whenever I saw the "cover the earth" Sherwin-Williams logo. I thought it was advertising some kind of hard candy with cherry syrup poured over it.
do you remember the commercial with the scrubbing bubbles. they had little faces and they cleaned your tub. i thought they were real. when my mother bought the cleaner. i ran into the bathroom very excited because i was finally going to get to see the little guys. needless to say i was devasted when only white foam came out and there were no little bubble guys to play with.
When my best friend was little, she used to wait for her mom to finish washing the linoleum kitchen floor so that she could stand on it and talk to Mr. Clean, who she believed would then appear in them, just like in the commercials.
When I was a kid, there was a TV ad for pizza sauce and the jingle said, "Open yourself....some Pizza Quick Sauce. And open your own....pizzeria!". That was the first time that I'd heard the word "pizzeria", and thought that it must be some special type of diarrhea that you got from eating pizza.
When I was younger George Foreman was doing the Meineke commercials. Everytime we rode by the one near us, I used to think that he would be in there if I went in, and I wanted to go and meet him.
Here in Germany we always had those adverts for cleaning agents. After the woman had cleaned the bathroom with them she was standing in front of a mountain. I didn't understand that this meant that the bathroom smelled as fresh as the air on a mountain after you've cleaned it. So I always asked my bother to buy it because I wanted to go on holiday on a mountain.
while watching commercials, i used to think that the actors would react the commercial over and over again, not that it was taped. I always thought they were amazing that they could do it perfect everytime
I used to think the "Scrubbing Bubbles " commercial bubbles, were real! I begged my mom over and over to buy the product when we were shopping. I really wanted to see those cute lil scrubbing bubbles at work! With those big eyes, cute little smiles........I was 4 or 5 at this stage.
As a child, maybe until I was about 7 or 8, I always wanted to send off for every special offer I saw on any kind of food or drink packet, whether it was for something I really wanted or not. I once saw on a bottle of tomato ketchup "Free from artificial colour and preservative". Because it had the word "free" on it, I thought it must be some kind of special offer. I was very disappointed when I tried to peel the label off and found no special offer underneath.
On sweepstakes commercials, I would always hear them say "Many will enter, you will win..." In stead of "many will enter, few will win."
I entered many contests, but didn't win anything....
There is a commercial for a fast food resteraunt with a misleading song. The song is 'Big Hucking Chicken'. I accidentally miseard it as 'Big ****ing Chicken'.
I used to believe that commercials on T.V. were true. I begged my mom to buy the Chips Ahoy cookies with colored sprinkles. After I ate one, I said "Gee, it doesn't taste like a party in my mouth."
When I was little, about 5 or 6, there was a commercial on TV for facial cream that would take ten years off your age. I was terrified that my mom would by some and somehow I would accidentally use it then dissappear because I was still under ten years old.
When I was little I believed commericals on TV were "live" and re-enacted over and over again each time they were repeated.
One Saturday night our babysitter was trying to get us to sleep at 11 PM- I protested that the kids on the "slip and slide" commericial were still awake and working so I could stay up too; she asked if it the commercial wasn't "recorded" then why was it sunny outside at 11PM at night? My bubble burst then and there.
