Favorite Commercial Slogans

Seeing as this is a Mac users forum, Apple's Think Different should win by a mile. But what are the other commercial slogans or tag lines that have caught your fancy?



For me, the following comes to mind when it comes to effective commercial slogans.



1. Quality never goes out of style (Levi's). How can you possibly go wrong with a pair of Levi's jeans after reading this tag line?



2. Where do you want to go today? (Microsoft). It's arrogant and brilliant at the same time. You have to appreciate a good ad copy when you see one, even if the company that adopts it is hardly deserving.



3. Have you driven a Ford lately? (Ford). Sometime in its long history, Ford cars earned a not-so-savory reputation for Ford cars that are not built to last. This slogan helped changed that impression in recent years.



4. The power to be your very best (Apple Macintosh). Before think different, there was this nice slogan to promote the Mac. Very effective during the early years.



5. Intel Inside (Intel). Sounds more like a warning than anything. It kept a lot of Mac users away from PC's and still does.



What other commercial slogans do you remember, guys?

Oo nga, the actual phrase is "Birch Tree -- it's everybody's milk," but my friends and I always made fun of it as above.

I read from some barbershop I used to pass on my way to school everyday a long time ago that had this on its outdoor sign: If your hair is not becoming to you, you should be coming to us. :lol:

Pinoy slogans stuck in my head due to heavy cheese factor..



1. "Hindi lang pang pamilya, pang sports pa!"

2. "Johsons yata yan... tumataggaaallll"

3. "Seiko wallet, ang wallet na maswerte"

4. "Alaska man, masarap man" (with a forced american accent. pero hindi ata slogan 'to)
