    ... And sometimes wish you could forget!

    The PUBLIC INFORMATION FILMS could be terrifying too!

    Feel free to post and discuss your good and bad memories of the adverts of your past...

    1980 - The Original Shake n Vac TV Ad With Jenny Logan

    For an entire generation this song represented brainwashing of the highest order!

    Once heard, never forgotten! :(

    Superman VS Nick O'Teen PSA Anti-Smoking 1980-1982

    Superman had a problem with cigarettes in these adverts.

    And he never said yes to them!





    Tragically, this admirable stance was tempered somewhat by the sale of these sweet cigarettes in U.K. shops at the same time. o_O

    Superman....

    Jenny Logan made another one 30 years later! She still looks good.

    I would have bought a Chewits because of the commercial alone. :-)

    They weren't always funny though.

    Sometimes they were just simply terrifying!



    It got the public safety message across though! :)

    Or sometimes, singing a song might stop you from burning your house down!
