    I remember when I was a kid those brands had so many goofy commercials in the 80's - especially around Christmas...

    Most of the Folgers or Maxwell House commercials were pretty much like "hey our coffee makes you want to fuck" or "we just got done fucking so lets have some coffee." :lol:

    There were certainly sexual undertones in those 80's coffee commercials, either that or they compared drinking coffee to the adrenalin rush of fucking in a shopping cart in the middle of a public park or something..

    I saw a few recently when I was transferring some old VHS tapes to digital, I remembered them because just how cheesey they actually were but now the shit is just comedy, as are most commercials from the 80's.

    Commercials should have it's own thread.

    Have to go with Kraft.

    So many different local and regional food brands were so good, before the Evil Food Empire snapped them up and turned them to crap.

    Starbucks joe without all of the fancy ingredients and toppings is some nasty tasting stuff at triple the price of a decent cup of coffee.

    Why do people line up to buy that over priced swill?? :confused:
