    I remember those commercials very well. Oscar Bologna, LIfe (Hey Mikey!) are my personal faves out of that group.

    here are a list of my favorite commercials from YOUTUBE that I would like tshar with you and your listners. A few of them are Canadian commercials aired in Canada back from the 80.s. Enjoy!

    Type in:

    “Albert” Canadian Tire Commercial

    Canadian Tire is a chain of stores dedicated to selling automotive parts, doing automotive repairs and selling other products for the household. They exist all across Canada and I believe there aare afew of them in the States (although not many).

    I remember watching this Albert commercial int he 80’s. Now when I look at it I dream of having a son who will grow up one day to win a cup for my beloved (and also a long suffering fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs–hell of a dream!). This commercial also teaches some valuable life lessons as well. Take a look!

    1980’s Smarties (Canada) Commercial

    SOmetimes I sing this tune to myself and I still LOVE Smarties (red is my fave color because it’s a romantic color as well, like Fiona’s lips). The song is entitled, “When Yu Eat YOur Smarties, Do YOu Eat The Red One’s Last”. I don’t remember if I ever did? They quickly melt in your hand though.

    I Am Canadian

    A Molson Canadian beer commercial from the late 80’s and early 90’s, promoting Canadian pride and Molson Canadian beer (my favorite beer and believe it or not, I have yet to taste American beer althoug I would like to one day and compare; better late then never I guess).

    Molson Commercial Canadian Stereotype

    This one will give you a laugh because it’s an amusing commercial about how some stereotypes are being portrayed by some Canadians (from Americans I mean, about us).
    I remembe when this came out in the late 80’s and early 90’s and thought it was funny at the time as well. Have a laugh at this one and hope it lighten’s everyone up a bit as we approach Christmas.

    Miller Lite 1970’s Classic Commercial

    This I remember watching on TV in the 70’s. It’s a Christmas beer commerical. See if you recognize some of the faces in thsi commercial. I could name a few of them. Good luck! Merry Christmas!

    1970’s Calgon Commercial “Ancient Chinese Secret”

    I LOVE this commerical and is an all time favorite of mine. How many of you remember this one?

    HallMark Card- Nancy Mckeon (1981)

    Nancy did this commercial, I believe just before joining The Facts of LIfe in its second season. I’ve watched this commerical several times and even shared it with the love of my life Fiona (Fee-Fi). When I look at this commercial I just think about how two lives can be so different, yet also I realize how lucky how I am to be alive and to have another opportunity to dream and BAELIEVE in my dreams and “make a difference” in order to put a sad and sordid past behind me. I want to ahve these dreams and I BELIEVE in them. I hope Nancy see’s this because I am sincere. The world needs hope and “RainbowRay” and “Eric’s Mirror” gives that hope. So I keep BELIEVING!

    Enjoy!
