They still do jingles, you just forget them until something triggers them in your mind. You hear the word "farmers" or "liberty", or "buy" and "car" in the same sentence, and your brain is off to the races. They're just not as involved as they used to be.

ďLibertyĒ used to say it five times. Now four. Some kind of ultra-Ur example of Banak-Tarski ear worms.

Snipe edit: Alfred Besterís book ďThe Demolished ManĒ took place in a world of telepathic detectives. The richest man in the world wanted to commit a crime, and used the worst jingle produced by one of his companiesí marketing team because it was so annoying running in his head. It was a new trick by a non-telepath to shield his mind during the time up to, including, and after completing the crime. The jingle was touted as the first commercially produced earworm.

Speaking of jingles, I'm not sure if Cellino and Barnes operated outside of New York state, but I still remember their old phone number (before they changed to just repeatedly mashing 8).

Like, I sometimes can't retain important stuff, but 854-20-20 will probably stay with me til I die.

This is a very dumb commercial, but they also accidentally wrote a solid late career Devo song. It's pretty great how modern day capitalism is basically all the dark satires that were made in the 70s and 80s.

It's not actually great.

It doesn't matter if a commercial has absolutely nothing to do with the product being advertised as long as you remember the name of the brand at the end. That's why we still get those loving GEICO commercials.

The "funny" thing is that the Barnes Firm jingle is so much less obnoxious so it's like Barnes is owning Cellino from beyond the grave

Haha, drat, this is the jingle I was trying to remember yesterday, because their phone number was so horrifically incompatible with singing. "One hundred eiiiiiiiiiiiight...million!"

This was in California btw so they were definitely national.

Yeah, they've had commercials for sick adults, usually implied to be diarrhea or hung over depending on the ad without actually saying it, for a few years now. I think every one of them ends with "find it in the kids aisle!" or something like that.
