It started in 1968, when Phillip Morris launched the very first cigarette brand marketed specifically to women with the tag line "You've come a long way, baby" (created by Leo Burnett Agency). This slogan perfectly tapped into the female consumer's mind. The ads showed how smoking Virginia Slims was a form of freedom and a new kind of liberation.

7. During the late 1980s, David Joseph Rufkahr and Dick Maugg were television "pitchmen" for a popular item. At the end of their commercials, what product did they thank their viewers for their support?

From Quiz I Pitched It ... You Bought It!

Answer: wine coolers

A rage in the 1990s, flavored wine coolers found a definite market. Two of the most recognizable spokespersons were Rufkahr and Maugg, who posed as the folksy team of Frank Bartles and Ed Jaymes. "Bartles and Jaymes" wine coolers, a product of E & J Gallo Wineries, was introduced in 1981. Wine coolers came in a variety of flavors including Strawberry Daiquiri, Tropical Mango, Green Apple, and Fuzzy Navel, just to name a few. In commercials, Bartles and Jaymes, two elderly gentlemen, were seen sitting on their front porch, speaking directly to the audience about a new wine cooler flavor or some aspect about their product. Each commercial ended with Frank Bartles' tagline to the viewers, "and thank you for your support".

8. "Moonlings" traded "Earthlings" something for a jar of orange flavored and grape flavored Tang Breakfast drink in this US television commercial from the early 1970s. What did they offer in exchange for Tang?

From Quiz What In The World Were They Selling? #2

Answer: A bag of rocks

In this 70s commercial, the residents of the moon noticed that they were out of both flavors of Tang, so one of their members dashed off to earth with a bag of rocks to trade for the product and returned nanoseconds later with both. "Sometimes I wonder if there's intelligent life on that planet", was the closing statement made by one of the moon's cartoon "residents". Tang was originally made by General Foods in 1957, but its sales were flat until astronaut John Glenn took it into space during the Mercury flights. From that point on, it was erroneously thought to have originated from the space program and sales took off, just like the rocket ships that it became associated with.

9. "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star", was a television jingle from the 1960s that touted products that had something to do with autos, (obviously). What was the product that this commercial wanted you to purchase?

From Quiz What In The World Were They Selling?

Answer: Oil products sold by Texaco

Texas Oil Company (Texaco) was an American oil company. Back in those days, believe it or not, service station attendants actually came out to your car when you pulled up to the pump, checked your fluid levels, offered to clean your windshield, and sometimes offered you a free drinking glass if you filled up your vehicle. All this for around 39 to 55 cents per gallon! (Depending on the year that you pulled in; as the years went by, the services gradually went away, as did the cheaper oil prices.)

10. What delivery company used the slogan "When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight"?

From Quiz Second Blast from the Advertising Past

Answer: FedEx

The name is short for "Federal Express". Good ol' John Moschitta starred in an ad showing his fast-paced talking in a fast-paced world where time is an important asset.

12. Do you remember the Budweiser frogs? What were their names?

From Quiz The Names Just Don't 'Ad' Up!

Answer: Bud & Weis & Er

We were first introduced to Bud, Weis, and Er, the Bud Beer frogs during Super Bowl XXIX in 1995. Their director also directed some of the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' movies. They were so popular that a couple of chameleons named Frankie and Louis were invited to join them in the pond. To get more of the spot light, the lizards hired an inept hit man who just happened to be a ferret. The ferret was never successful in getting rid of the frogs. But in 1998, the chameleons were successful in replacing the frogs because the frogs were well known and liked by children who were not of drinking age. Ya' just never know who to trust!

13. This soda pop was actually born in the Tennessee hills in the 1940s and one of its original slogans was "It'll tickle your innards!" What brand of carbonated beverage am I referring to?

From Quiz Soda Pop Slogans

He also had a recurring role on "Friends" as Monica's boyfriend Dr. Richard Burke (1996-2000) and played A.J. Cooper on "Las Vegas" (2007-2008), just to name some of his television work. Mr. Selleck has also had a successful film career as well. Don Johnson was a police officer in television's "Miami Vice" (1984-1989).

23. A popular perfume advertised "Exciting things happen when it's Evening in _______ " .

From Quiz Commercial Slogans of the Fifties

"Evening in Paris" was created in 1929 by Bourjois. It became one of the most popular perfumes in the world. The cologne sold in 25 cent bottles in dime stores and in crystal bottles with glass stoppers in fine department stores. It was a favorite during WWII and through the post-war fifties. The fragrance might still conjure up memories of wartime dance halls for G.I. vets. The brand was re-launched in limited quantities as "Soir de Paris". There are far more bottles in styles produced during the 1950s for collectors on the market today than those from earlier eras.

24. This cigarette brand encouraged its prospective customers to "Come to where the flavor is, come to ____________". Where did the advertisers want the viewers to go?

25. In this cute Jeep Liberty commercial, a man was joined in song by a squirrel, a wolf and a couple of birds who entered his vehicle. What song did they all sing together?

From Quiz Pop Songs in TV Commercials 4

Answer: Rock Me Gently

Entitled "Pouring In", Jeep's 2007 ad showed a man opening his sunroof and turning up the stereo as he drove along. He was joined by a squirrel who, to the man's surprise, began singing along to "Rock Me Gently". The man joined in and soon two birds flew in the sunroof and perched on the backs of the seats. As they all sang together, a wolf, who jumped in the sunroof, swallowed one of the birds. The remaining bird, the squirrel and the man all looked at the wolf as if to say "we're singing here". The wolf then spit the bird out so he could pick up the song with, "baby, baby...". The animals and the man continued singing together as they drove on. Jeep's tagline was "Have fun out there". "Rock Me Gently" was a number one hit for Andy Kim in 1974.

26. In the late 50's and into the early 60's, "The Flintstones" actually sponsored one brand of cigarettes. Barney, Fred, Wilma, and Betty could be seen smoking at the end of the show. Which brand did they choose?

From Quiz Television and Cigarettes: A Bad Combination

Answer: Winston

The series was originally written to appeal to adults, not children. When it started airing earlier in the evening, more children started watching. By the time Pebbles was born, Winston was no longer interested in sponsoring the show. "The Flintstones" started pitching Motorola, Welch's juice, and today vitamins.

27. Taco Bell used, appropriately enough, the song "I Melt with You" in its 2007 ad which promoted the Cheesy Beefy Melt. What group sang the song?

From Quiz Pop Songs in TV Commercials 3

Answer: Modern English

The commercial showed various people holding their Cheesy Beefy Melts with the cheese stretched from their mouths to the melt. Among them were a man and woman eyeing each other at a train station, rival football fans, a goth girl and oddly enough, the Grim Reaper sitting with a man on a park bench. The announcer advised us to "Fall in love with melty cheese". Although Modern English's video was played quite often on MTV in 1983, the song only made it to number seventy-eight on the US pop charts. A re-release in 1990 fared only slightly better, reaching number seventy-six. The song was featured in the movie "Valley Girl" (1983), and was also used in a TV ad for the GMC Acadia, although the GMC ad used a version sung by Nouvelle Vague. The Taco Bell spot used the original version of the song.

28. A number of beer companies will tell you about the water that they use. Who used "From the Land of Sky Blue Waters"?
