During a conversation at the weekend with friends, we got to discussing old catchy and memorable commercials and jingles. The first example we came up with was the old "Three Little Pigs" commercial for Coldseal Windows.
We all know a catchy jingle from a tv or radio commercial from years gone by that we can't help but sing everytime you go shopping and see the product. Actually, 45% of us say it pops into our heads against our will!
In a recent survey, the number one jingle has turned out to be Cornetto’s “Just One Cornetto, give it to me”, an advert that ran during the 1980s.
Go compare took second place, with a jingle sung by opera singer Gio Compario. Third place went to "P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin" and "A Mars a day" was fourth.
Chicken Tonight’s jingle "I feel like Chicken Tonight" completed the top five, despite the advert having not aired on British television since 2000.all all thrown
