As a student of marketing I am always enamored by advertisers who seem to "get it." Two of my favorite commercials of all time are shown below (the Toyota commercial called "Swagger Wagon" recently featured on this blog would round out the top three). I love these because they are not only super funny, but also memorable.
I think it's a coincidence that they both poke a little fun at communism, which is probably due to their era of creation, that is, near the end of the Cold War. And just in case you were wondering, I don't care how popular socialistic thought becomes on college campuses, there is nothing wrong with showing the lunacy of a system that is the enemy of individual freedom.
Now, back to the lighter side of this post, which was the intention all along. Watch both commercials and try to guess which phrases from each have become a regular part of my (and my friends' and family's) lexicon(s). Enjoy!
