Horrible fashions in the 80's.

Horrible?! Hey, the 80s had some super rad fashions back then.

We thought we looked good...

I remember the Zayre in Richton Park well as my Mom would often shop there and I'd tag along and play the "Donkey Kong" machine. Right next door was the old A&P and right across the street was Eagle. All three are gone now and I'm wondering if they ever got around to filling those vacancies. They sat empty for years

Galaga, I remember that Zayre's too! I haven't driven by in a few months but I think it's something else now.

Looks like Ally Sheedy in the beginning, but I believe she would have been much younger than that in 1980.

You know Stevie, you might just be right. I missed the possible resemblance the first time I watched this commercial. All Sheedy was born in June of 1962 making her 18 when this came out. The woman in this commercial could easily be 18. Maybe it's her and you're the first to notice! ;-D

Nah, it's not her. Look at her teeth close-up when she smiles. Also, her voice is different.

Yeah. You're right Fuzzy. She's a dead ringer though.

I always wanted to go to Zayre back then because I LOVED their commercials, but my folks just wouldn't shop there. Why I never knew...

Maybe your parents felt about Zayre what people like my girlfriend's father feel about Wal Mart. They think of them as the devil and stay far away.

I remember the Zayre store in Waukegan where I grew up. They even had a gas station in the parking lot. Used to go there and buy baseball cards. Bought my mom a Wham! album from there too!
Comment posted by Lindy51 on Tuesday, January 18th 2011 at 9:29pm.

Buying baseball cards...now there is nostalgia right there...I know you can still find them but they arent as readily available as they used to be....I remember going to the store and buying baseball cards and I used to be obsessed with those Books that came with stickers and you had to put the stickers on the right page lol

I haven't seen a Zayre in 25 years at least. The Zayre in my hometown is now a Menard's.
Comment posted by OldTVNut on Monday, June 6th 2011 at 2:37pm.

I went to the Zayre at 3938 S. Harlem Avenue in Lyons a ton when I was a kid. How many days I spent in that toy aisle I'll never know!

According to Wikipedia, it sold all the stores in October 1988 to Ames. So it was an Ames store for a few years, then in the early-mid 90s, it became Phar-Mor for a bit. I think that location was then a gym for a while. Today, it's a Marshalls clothing store.

Comment posted in Pampers - "Twice As Dry" (Commercial, 1979) by FuzzyMemories on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 at 12:27pm CT

This one features Sara Jane Whitman (Sara Ramos) as the baby. As she wrote to us in May of 2009:

"Here's my story: I have two older brothers, identical twins, and my mom had an agent trying to help get them into commercials. For whatever reason they weren't selected for any commercials (though I think one was in a TIDE commercial that never aired). When I was about 18 months old, my mom was talking to the agent and mentioned that she had a blonde hair/blue-eyed baby girl and the agent sent us on an audition for Pampers. I'm not sure this part is right, but as I think it goes, they didn't pick me. Later, the agent called my mom to say they wanted me to come back because I was so well behaved while waiting for the audition. Maybe the original baby was better looking, but not so well behaved? So, my mom brought me. She said I drank Evian water all day - and the crew sent her home with a case of it after the shoot since I liked it so much.

Here we are, 31 years later, and I had never seen the commercial until a work colleague found it on YouTube. I tried about 10 years ago to get it from Pampers. They sent me a few commercials, but none were me. I tried the ad agency and then the university housing the ad agency's old film reels. Nothing came through. I stopped trying and a month or so ago received an email from a colleague asking if the baby in the commercial on YouTube was me. And, yes it is! I really can't thank you enough. It was so very fulfilling to finally watch something that has been so much a part of my life story. You can't imagine what this means to me. To ultimately see this for the first time on YouTube was surreal and enjoyed by my entire family. So thank you, thank you."

The original airdate is May 3, my father's birthday. Then the first credit is "A September 19 Production." That's my birthday!

It seems the marketing was also way better back in the '70s then it is today. Do you think they would be able to get away with a commercial that just has ordinary people working and smiling while a nonsense jingle is playing for a WHOLE MINUTE???? When this aired on TV, this would have been a whole commercial break during Bozo's Circus or Ray Rayner. Also, I love the fact that they used ordinary people to sell their products and not some creepy clown and his high on LSD make up friends (even though Ronald was around during this time as well as Grimace).


Comment posted in Burger King - "The Return of the Whaler" (Commercial, 1983) by Detroit4Chicago on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at 10:08pm CT

BK's Whaler Fish Sandwich; on today's BK menu, it's called The Big Fish.

Reason? Changed in the late 1990's to keep the "Save The Whales" crowd, the environmental crowd and to some extent, the PETA crowd at bay, so to speak.

Name sounded if the product came from whale blubber. Sort of like "buffalo wings;" some folks won't eat 'em. Why? Because they sound like they came from buffalo, not chicken! :?

I think in between, the sandwich was later called the Ocean Catch by BK, but idk.
