Comercials from the past


I have a request that may be interesting to some. There are several commercials that I have been trying to locate unsuccessfully. Maybe others would have better luck. [sign in to see URL] September and November 1985 I saw a Texaco gas commercial that starts with a woman in her car at the gas pump with an attendant handing her a bill for gas. She is surprised by the total, says excuse me ,gets out ,goes to the back of the car, puts a gas can down then lifts the car tipping it to the left dumping some gas back in the can, then lowers the car & hands the can to the stunned attendant. [sign in to see URL] 1986 several times I saw a root beer commercial with a popular guy at the time (Larry from the Newhart show)In the opening in a barn he is talking while behind him there is a hot girl just lowering a huge axl with 2 big wagon wheels attached. Apparently she had used it as a barbell a was curling it. 3. 1986 Sprite commercial a kid is talking about the energy his mom has since drinking sprite while they show her doing several feats such as lifting the couch with one hand while vacuuming , lifting her husband under the arms straight up and can't remember what else. [sign in to see URL] 80's/early 90's comedian Judy Tenuta (probably spelled wrong) talking while lifting huge weights I think with two hands then one but as the camera pans back we see she takes her hand off and the weight machine continues lifting Haha. At least it looked good till then. I can probably remember a few more. But if anyone has other sources then youtube these could be out there. I've looked a lot on youtube but haven't seen everything.

Thought it was a longshot but I managed to find the Judy Tenuta ad.

No luck on the others but found plenty of A&W ads with that actor, just not the right one.

Thanks for finding that!! Shows how the mind can change things over time. I could have sworn she did it with one hand also. I did only see it once or twice back then. The one I'd love to find most is the Texaco ad. I know that's accurate.

Re: Commercials from the past


Also yes I've found a couple other root beer commercials with that guy but not the one with the girl. One of my people on youtube is uploading commercials from Nov 23 1985. Nothing in the 1st two uploads as far as the Texaco ad but maybe we'll get lucky. I have already checked probably most but not all commercials uploads from 85 just to let you know. I remember another I saw a few times during the 1988 olympics from McDonalds where a woman eating at Mcdonalds daydreams of being an olympic power lifter hoisting huge weights then at the end back in reality she pushes a van I think out of her way with one hand. No luck yet on that one either.

Re: Comercials from the past


There was a irn bru drink advert where a girl throws a stone and sinks a boat and I'm sure one where she runs after her soldier lover on a train knocking all sorts of things over whilst she runs after it when it leaves the station. I'm pretty sure she grabs hold of the moving train and stops it. Anyone? These possibly would have been only UK based adverts
