go see cal!

May 28, 2009

this week on pop culture friday: favorite local commercials!

where i grew up, we had 3 local stations from the central coast, and several local stations from los angeles. the most memorable local commercials came from the l.a. stations.

who could forget the days when ernest was the hottest thing going? why, he even did car commercials!

but the absolute best were the commercials from cal worthington ford in long beach, with the insane jingle that got stuck in your head.

true story: when i was a kid, i totally thought the lyrics were “go see cow,” especially since one of the commercials featured cal with a cow.

honorable mention to the slo moving company commercials (sadly unavailable on youtube), which i remember only because of how confusing they were to me when i was a kid. see, SLO stands for San Luis Obispo, but i didn’t know that when we first moved to the central coast, so i thought they were advertising themselves as slow, which i found rather baffling. who would want a slow moving company?
