when I was about 5 there was this commercial for Circuit City and a big plug always plugged into the top of the building. I used to think it really did that and I wanted to go by Circuit City all the time to see the giant plug.
Its only been 8 years since I believed that.

When I was seven years old, I saw a commercial for the doll Baby Born. In the commercial, the girl was pouring the fake baby food packet (which was powder) into the small dish and it immedietly turned into the wet baby food (commercialism can make anything possible). That led me to believe that it was a "magic bowl" and that the powdery stuff would automatically turn moist.

I finally got the doll for Christmas and I tried this bowl thing out for myself. I was disappointed to find out that you had to add water first!

I used to think that commercials that say "get your free gifts now" or "available now" or anything that says "now" meant that we have to rush there within a few seconds before the commercial ends.

when tv ads for toys came on i would always try to convince my parents that they should buy me the toy because it was "9.99 PLUS TAX!" i didn't know that the 9.99 did not inlcude the additional tax, and thought that i would get the toy because of the lesser price

I used to believe tv commercials were not played from tape, but their actors had to perform live in front of camera every time the commercial was emitted. I remember how I wondered about commercial with group of kindergarten children listening to dentist and answering his question - "man, how poor they are, being such a child they have to play the same scene thousands of times and to do it completly the same each time" It was just one day when I realised, "Hey it is impossible to make perfectly identical moves so many times!" Then I said to myself "Ya fool, what are cassetes for!" =)

When I was a little kid and I used to sit infront of the TV watching cartoons alllll day and I used to see toy commercials on the TV about a toy that I wanted, I thought that the advertisement ment that there is only 1 of that toy for sale in the store so I used to tell my brother I am going to get that toy before he does! kinda dumb lol.

There used to be a commercial for a car salesman named Cal Worthington (and his dog Spot) which had a jingle containing the line, "Go see Cal, Go see Cal, Go see Cal!" I thought they were singing "Pussy cow, pussy cow, pussy cow!" like a pussy cat.

I always thought the Sherwin - Williams sign was an alien: the paint can was the head and the globe was its body!

when I was around 8 or 9 years old and I saw advertisements on TV for cereals, toys, etc. I was quite annoyed with them because they paused the show that I would be watching at the time. One time, my mom had bought me Lucky Charms and I hadn't seen the commercial after a while so I thought that if you had bought the items shown on commercials, they wouldn't show the commercials anymore.

when I was little (about 5-6) there was a commercial that would play all the time "Cal Worthington Ford" (those of you from California, no doubt know who I'm talking about. well he would feature zoo animals in his commercials with a little jingle that went "when you need a car or truck, go see cal go see cal go see cal" well for YEARS I thought he said "pussy-cow" which in my young mind meant a fantastical animal, that was the size of a cat but looked like a cow.

I used to believe that all commercials were shown live and that each time a commercial with a school aged kid came on, that the child was signed out of school in order to perform the commercial. With that belief, I wanted to be on TV so bad!

When I was little I used to think when movie advertisments said "see it at a theater near you" you had to see the movie within a certain number of miles from your house. I always wonderd how they would know where you lived.

Until I was about 10 i thought that when, on tv, they said stuff like, in this compition there are 250 tvs up for grabs, that one person got them all. I always wondered what the hell i would do with 250 tvs...

I saw a durex advert years ago and it had loads of people dressed up as sperm in a durex, they were all wearing glasses and saying how spacious it was and saying "oh, and look at the view". I honestly thought that it was a contact lense advert. I thought that they were dressed up as lots of little eyeballs. Mentioned it in front of a whole bunch of people, who,knowing me laughed at me and explained. oh the humility, i was 14 for gods sake!

I used to beleive on commercials when they would say "you have to be 18 or older to order" that means that the kids on the actual commercial were 18 and you had to be 18 to play with the toy.

When I was little I grew up in Southern California and they used have this comercial that came on for a used car dealer and the song was (Go see Cal-Go see Cal-Go see Cal) I always thought the song was saying "Pussy Cow, Pussy Cow, Pussy Cow" LOL I could never figure out what or why he was saying that!! Years later I found out that Cal was the car salesman's name. Geeze HELLO!! The things kids hear.
