Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Classic Commercial Jingles 50's & 60's

Reflecting yesterday on the Cola Wars brought back nostalgic memories of the jingles of Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola. Of course, along with those flashbacks are classic commercial jingles that came out of the 50s & 60s. Step back in time. Which ones do you remember? Did you have a favorite?

It is amazing how commercials have changed through the decades. Once upon a time watching a commercial was actually entertaining, clean and wholesome, definitely considered tame by today's standards. Advertising, then and now, encourages, persuades and manipulates its audience for the sole purpose of sales, sales, sales. OR, supposedly so. My question is...if the sole purpose is for sales, why do they make so many ads completely stupid, especially the male role? Am I missing something? Of course, what really ticks me off is the fact the stupid ones are the ones I remember! Do I buy the product? NOT because of the commercial, that's for sure!

Then, there are those that are just funny...really totally tickle the funny bone funny! Which of those in the video below do you think are the funniest of the funniest? Enjoy!

You can't leave until you reflect on the Best Superbowl Commercials!
