Classic Commercials Collection

More Interesting Commercials in my Collection

Ah, the nostalgia of finding old VHS tapes in the back of the closet! Recently, I stumbled across some tapes that I had recorded off of the television years ago, and I was amazed at the variety of commercials I found on them.

From the ad for Delta Airlines that promised great service with the tag line "Delta is ready when you are" to Cinular Wirless commercial with some retro phones, these commercials brought back many memories. One of my favorites was an Ad for SBC Pacific Bell DSL. That one was so cool!

It was so much fun to watch these commercials and remember the days when life was simpler and commercials were much more creative. Some of the ads were really clever and even funny, like the one for the Volkswagen that featured the Roman Aqueduct.

As I watched these commercials, I was reminded of how much has changed over the years. Nowadays, commercials are more about product placement and making a statement than about being creative and entertaining. It's a shame that some of the creativity has been lost from today's commercials, but it was great to take a trip down memory lane and see some of the old ads.

It was fascinating to watch these old commercials and see how different they were from today's ads. It was like taking a look back in time, and it was a great reminder of how far we have come. It was fun to relive some of the old memories that these commercials brought back, and it was a great way to spend an afternoon!

Here are a couple that are featured in this collection:

Delta Airlines

In the 1980s, Delta Airlines launched a commercial that featured the slogan "Delta is ready when you are." The ad featured a series of vignettes showcasing Delta's commitment to being there for their customers whenever and wherever they needed them.

The commercial begins with a group of businesspeople leaving a meeting and rushing to catch a flight. As they arrive at the airport, a Delta plane is already waiting for them, ready to take off. The ad then features a diverse range of passengers, from families with children to elderly couples, all arriving at the airport and being greeted by Delta's friendly and efficient staff.

What makes the commercial effective is the way it emphasizes Delta's commitment to customer service and convenience. By showcasing the airline's ability to be ready and waiting for their customers, the ad effectively communicates Delta's brand promise and builds trust and loyalty among potential and existing customers.

The commercial's slogan, "Delta is ready when you are," perfectly captures the spirit of the airline's brand and values. It conveys a sense of reliability and responsiveness, reassuring customers that Delta is always there to meet their needs and provide a seamless travel experience.

Volkswagen Roman Aqueduct commercial

Volkswagen is known for creating memorable and creative advertisements, and their Roman Aqueduct commercial is no exception. The ad, which aired in 2020, features a group of Roman citizens who are tasked with building an aqueduct to bring water to their city. As they struggle to transport heavy blocks of stone to the construction site, a modern Volkswagen Passat drives by effortlessly, leaving the Romans in awe.

The commercial is a clever way of showcasing the Passat's impressive engineering and efficiency. By juxtaposing the ancient methods of construction with the modern car, Volkswagen highlights the car's ability to tackle difficult terrain and obstacles with ease.
