Classic TV Ads

I came across this site that I thought was pretty interesting. It has a large variety of different TV ads from the 1970's, 1980's and the 1990's so you can click on an era and watch commercials in different categories from each era. It's really interesting to see how much ads have changed over the years. It seems as though in the older commercials, there actually seemed to be a purpose and they are actually trying to sell the product. I watched a Frito's commercial, which if you would like to watch it you can click here!, and there was a song about how crunchy and munchy they were and it showed a little kid getting all excited to eat them. Many other were like this, where they really focused on what they were selling. In many commercials we see today you have no idea what the commercial is about until the very end! It gets annoying and really takes your interest away from commercials! If you want to check out the site you can click here
