remember when Taco Bell bought the liberty bell?

prank by taco bell. but it was a legit ad campaign for a legit product, so Im not sure if this is entirely an "ad in disguise"

I have no recollection of this ad campaign, but I did come upon this interesting article today about it- http://mentalfloss.com/article/89371/bad-beef-remembering-burger-kings-infamous-wheres-herb-campaign

Also, on a Personal note, I would like to add that I have never eaten a whopper. I like(d) their cheeseburgers well enough though.

I saw this searching for print ads, and all I could think of was that Star Trek Episode with the Space Hippies.... I AM NOT HERBERT. )

remember that weird pizza mascot guy?

I had no idea he was done in by a paranoid schizophrenic by the name of Kenneth Lamar Noid who believed the ads were about him....Truth is stranger than fiction... Paranoid Mr. Noid was Annoyed.


(maybe start a tag for pizza?)

from what I understand, it was the cost of licencing Mack the Knife that killed this campaign

I remember kinda liking these ads as a kid.... but looking at them now, its kinda... creepy...

ETA- here's a link to a fairly good story about the rise and fall of Mac Tonight-

From 1976. If you were around then, remember how almost EVERYTHING got in on the red, white, and blue act? I guess if you didn't, you weren't American or something.

Friends, I feel soooo dumb. I finally had a contest entry and accidentally posted it to my own LJ instead of here!

Back in the day Tim Horton's was mostly just coffee and donuts - now you can get lunch, soup, sandwiches and more fast :-D I think sometimes it was mostly a regional thing - I grew up in Western Canada where you were most likely to see Sir Donut and Robin's Donuts. Now you can't find either.

I have always been fascinated with automats, but never had the luck to eat at one.

Yes, we're still going bareback without a calendar; BUT I'm about 1/2 way done!! So progress? Hell, high water, and all my brake lines going out---on a hill, of course while going down---have contributed to my inability to sit here for hours uninterrupted. Knock on wood, if they don't start demolishing the house across the street this morning, I'm gonna sit here and just DO IT! No way I could work with the house being demolished, as the street is 15' wide and well, my house will be shaking, vibrating, windows rattling, it'll be noisy as hell, etc.

I sincerely thank y'all for your patience!!!

Our contest theme for May is FAST FOOD!! Ads for fast food restaurants!! Chain or even local fast food, doesn't matter.

Our rule post:

1. You must at least put 'contest' in the subject line for me to tally votes for your entry.

2. Print or video ads are fine.

3. All regular Vintage Ads' rules apply EXCEPT only one ad per contest entry please.

4. VOTING is via a 'YES' in the comments. I can only tally a YES as a vote so as to be completely fair to everyone.

5. As always, non-contest/non-event themed vintage ads are ALWAYS welcomed to be posted!!

6. Hem and Haw Rule: I'm trying to decide how to atone for being a bad mod about the event calendar. Perhaps I should punish myself by engaging in a discussion with Jon Williamson on how all vintage ads belong to him cuz he slaps his watermark on them? No, I think that's too harsh, much too harsh.

7. If you remember, please tag your post 'contest entry'. If you don't remember to do that, no worries, I'll do it for you.

8. The MOST important rule of Vintage Ads all the time: HAVE FUN!!!
