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....

Why can't I be a winner?

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.

I used to pick up Mrs. Butterworth bottles and try to get them to talk to me like they did in the commercials.

I used to believe that if I said 'Hey Kool-Aid!' loudly enough, the giant pitcher would come crashing through the wall like in the TV commercials. But then I would be in big trouble for destroying the house and so I never tried.

There was this old Pop- Tarts commercial that I really liked in fifth grade. It was advertising freezing your Pop- Tarts, so it had a yeti in it that said, "Best eaten frozen!" At the end of the ad, an announcer with a Norwegian accent cam on and said, "Listen to the Yeti!" But I thought he was saying something in Norwegian, like, "Lisen Tudietti!"

When he get on, he leave ur @$$ for a white girl

I used to believe that commercials were predictions of television shows.
