Can you remember some of the funniest and best kids’ commercials from your childhood? Here is a list of my top 5 funniest kid’s commercials from the 90s for your enjoyment.
1. Hostess cupcake commercial – The commercial starts off with an overweight lady in the ocean in a inner tube and a shark swimming around underneath. The Shark then attacks and bumps the lady out of the inner tube making her fly high out of the scene. The camera pans to the shark who says, “Where’s the cream filling?” I love it because you weren’t expecting that the shark thought she was a hostess cupcake.
2. “Got Milk” – Another group of funny commercials were the Milk commercials. The original in 1995 had a guy eating a peanut butter sandwich as he was listening to the radio. A question came online asking the $10,000 question which he knew the answer, but could not because his mouth was full and he needed a drink. Then a voice pops up an says, “Got Milk?” It was great because the look on the guys face as he’s trying to answer the question was priceless.
3. Pepsi ads – Pepsi had one of the best marketing campaigns in the 90’s. The overall best is when a Pepsi and Coke delivery men meet in a diner. The make amends over the holidays and allow the other one to take a drink of their soda. But there’s a problem when the Coke delivery man likes the Pepsi drink so much that he won’t give the drink back to the Pepsi delivery man. Of course they are fighting over it as the scene ends. It was funny to see Pepsi and Coke go at it on TV.
4. 7 up ads – Do you remember the “Make 7 up yours” guy. They also had a commercial where he was playing catch with his dog and when the dog tried to catch the soda it bonked him on the head and the dog fell over. I loved all of the 7up commercials. They 7up guy was hilarious and I missed him when he left to make movies.
5. Energizer bunny – These commercials were always fun, because as you never knew when the bunny was going to come out. The popular kid’s commercial has a couple of kids eating a cereal when the mascot who was a army general in the shape of a grenade pop out of the logo of the cereal box. As the general was lecturing the kids, the energizer bunny came out and ran over him.
