10 First Commercials For Popular Products

    You always remember your first; first car, first girlfriend, and the first time you saw something on TV and thought “what the hell is that and how can I get one?” But do you always remember the first commercial? You might think you remember the “first Transformers commercial” or the first time an ad for OxiClean popped on your screen, but it might have just been new to you. Chances are it wasn’t the first commercial.

    I did some digging on YouTube to find some of the first commercials for the products we see advertised now at least once a day. I also found a couple personal favorites for things that aren’t around anymore (but we all wish they were).

    Here are ten first commercials for popular products and brands.

    The Transformers

    Chevy Camaro


    Lucky Charms


    Mountain Dew



    Apple Macintosh

    Nintendo Entertainment System

      Now a day’s Advertisers are always searching for new ways of advertisement to sell us things. While some of these methods or innovations are annoying and tasteless (like ads in textbooks or forehead tattoos), others are pretty awesome.


    2. That Dude says:

      Your kids don’t have toys because you spend all the money on yourself.

    3. Rex says:

      3.00$ for a Barbieeee!! That’s al it was back then … no wonder why my kids don’t have toys

      It’s funny that the NES showed the WORST part about the system. That pointless robot.
