Oh, my God: the radio just played bits from what Giant magazine (a magazine I know nothing about save for yendi's none-too-happy take on it) has termed the most iconic commercials of the 1980s.

They had the Tootsie Pop commercial!:
"Wise Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the middle of a Tootsie Pop?"
"Let's find out. A-one, a-two-hoo, a-three..." *CRUNCH* "...a-three."
See, I always remember Wise Mr. Owl saying it "a-two-hoo-hoo," but I was close.

And its vote for most iconic commercial of the '80s (yes, you remember this):
"Hey man, is that Freedom Rock?"
"Yeah, man!"
"Well, turn it up, man!"
Oy; I knew this just from the description the DJ started to give: "two men, two pigtails..."

And then I laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed.
