Ah, gotta love those old commercials that pushed an adversarial relationship between kids and adults. It's weird to me in hindsight because the commercials are basically pitting the kids against the very people who'd be buying the product for them, meaning that as a parent in the 90s you were likely to be buying something that your child had seen in a commercial that indirectly insulted you by painting all adults as useless, boring and uncool at best, or in outright opposition to childhood and everything it stands for at worst.

Wow...never thought of it it that way before.

Another scary thought...in the years since these ads came out, we've all migrated from the "you" group to the "them" group.

If you think the things people did for a Klondike bar were outrageous...they obviously never had a Snickers.

Lego had this jingle back in the 1990s:

I'd like to know more about that music, but any information about it seems lost to the sands of time. :(

Okay, here's one that's a personal fave, especially if you ever rented a Marvel cartoon from the local video store...

One of the tidbits I found was that the vocalist was Jason Paige (the same guy who did the English opening theme for Pokemon). But I found no recording of the piece itself other than the ones ripped from old VHS tapes. :(

In the meantime, anyone want cookies for breakfast?

This is my favorite commercial, this computer game is so awesome. If you are never played in this game, try to play and you will love it.
