In an advert from years ago about a chocolate egg with a model of a football player inside the lyrics that went with it were:
football crazy chocolate mad
My version went: Little crazy chocolate men.
HAHA!

You'll see where this is going, but I can't help myself.

When I was 7 or 8 I REALLY wanted some Transformers underwear. I kept telling my mom how I HAD TO have some. The reason for this is because I saw commercials where, as kids put on the Optimus Prime underwear they turned into the big robot/semi truck themselves.

When I finally got them I was devasted. I tried pulling them several times, but to no avail. I screamed for my mom and had to have her break the horribly disappointing news.

After my dad explained to me that the searchlight beams I'd occasionally see at night were like commercials - "adverts" to some of you, and meant to attract attention to an event or a business - I imagined that every time I saw one, it meant that a commercial was about to appear on a TV set somewhere.

I grew up in a Third World country that occasionally received American advertising. I used to believe that the cartoon characters on boxes of cereal were real, but that they only interrupted the breakfasts of American children.

In northern California, there's a car dealership owner named Cal Worthington. The jingle for his commercials (set to the tune of "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands"), was something along the lines of,
"If you want a car or truck, go see Cal!
If you want to save a buck, go see Cal!
If you want a brand new truck, if you want to change your luck, if you want to save a buck, go see Call!"

I, like the majority of kids my age, though he was saying "Pussy Cow".

I thought it was some sort of expression that meant "tough luck", as in, "you want a car? Well, tough, because you can't have one".

I remember that when watching TV before there was a comercial break someone would say, "This program was brought to you by veiwers like you. Thank you." I used to believe they were saying, "This program was broktuyued by viewers li-(etc.)" I thought this meant people from the show would occationally recruit loyal viewers to do the long tedious task of broktuyuing the shows. Man I was weird!!!

I used to believe that when a product had the label of "all new materials" that the material used to make it was all new--as in just made up, just discovered. but then i couldn't figure out why my T-shirt (as example) would be 'all new', it just seemed like cotton to me!

Once at a family gathering we were all watching TV when the Paint advert came on with the Sheepdog, I shouted out 'Look, look, its the Durex dog' For a while I wasn't sure why everyone was so amused, wasn't for a few years until I learnt how to read and realised it was Dulux! What a farce!

When my older brother and I were younger, he subscribed to Nintendo Power. One day, he received an ad that was a little yellow packet with the words "Do Not Open This" in big, "exciting" font.

"Why can't you open it?" I asked.

"If you open it, you'll go blind," he joked.

I was terrified out of that little packet for over three years until I finally got the nerve to brave opening it up.

It was just an ad for a renewal subscription of Nintendo Power.

there was this song on the radio, could've been some sort of adv with the lyrics, "recyle, that's what we do, recycle...."
well, in my childhood innocence, i thought that it was, "we cycle, that's what we do, we cycle, tell your mother that we cycle!"
i always wondered why...

When I was little there was this dog food brand called Chuck Wagon, and in their commercials this little wagon would come out from the cupboard and race around the house. When we got some for our dog, my older brother would shout "There it goes around the corner! You just missed it!" And he would have me chasing this nonexistant wagon all over the house.

You know on the strepsils ad when you see the strepsil between someone's fingers turn to a little first-aid kit? Well, when I was younger I made my mum buy them just so I could see the strepsil turn to a little first-aid kit!!

I used to be TERRIFIED of this commercial where a guy's head turned into a huge nose. Whenever it came on, I'd run out of the room screaming in fear of the nose.

Well when I was seven I saw this ad on TV in which a Lemon drop gets converted into a real soap and a lady washes her dishes with it to get shining utensils.

And after that I wasted like 10's of Lemons by sqeezing them on the floor to try and get a Soap out !

I used to believe when they said 'no tears' shampoo for kids, they really meant no matter how much of it got in my eye, it wouldn't hurt. I believed this for only about a couple of hours. I put shampoo directly in my eye after watching that commercial.
