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.

I used to believe - when I was a child - that when advertisements on frozen foods instructed the consumers that they can find said product in their "grocer's freezer," they were saying their "grossest freezer." I wondered for years why anyone would want frozen food from a gross freezer. :-)

I used to think that all commercial were live and so I was quite confused when I saw the same people day after day doing the exact same thing.

There is/was an ad for Gander Mountain (a sporting goods chain) in which the words "Hunt! Fish! Camp!" are chanted .... when I was young I refused to go to Gander Mountain because I misheard the chant to be "Hunt! Fish! Kill!" and I didn't want to go to a store where people were so violent and obsessed with death.

There used to be these Red Cross public service announcements on TV saying to donate blood. But I thought they were saying "don't eat blood".

In Canada (and possibly elsewhere), there are back pain relief medications called Robax. They have a series of long-running commercials featuring wooden marionette-type people. In them, the marionettes do something active until needles pop up from their backs, representing back pain. I thought that you actually got needles coming from your back whenever you had too much activity and got back pain and Robax was used to pull them out.

I used to believe that "some assembly required", as heard in countless television ads, meant that some of the boxes in the stores held completely assembled products and some required assembly. I could never figure out how I could never pick a box that contained an assembled toy. Never lucky enough I thought.

I don't know why, but I used to be afraid of the Royal Bank logo. There was something about that maze of yellow lines that freaked me out, apparently. Whenever I would go upstairs from my basement, I would run because I thought the logo was chasing me.

When I was a kid and they would say "void where prohibited" at the end of a commercial for some kind of contest, I would always wonder what kind of thing "voidwear" was and why it was prohibited. I guess somehow I realized that since no one talked about "voidwear", that it was something I should either know about already or something that I was not supposed to know about. Then one day...I think I was in my teens, driving even, that it hit me "oh void WHERE!!".

I used to think Mr. Rogers lived at Target because I always saw the Target logo before/after his show.

I remember after eating crackers with Imperial margarine, looking all over the house for my crown. I saw them pop up on people's heads on the commercial.

Also after eating a Halls I wondered when the vapours would go up my nose. Another sucker of special effects.
