I got to thinking: I think last year was the first year I can recall NOT
seeing that classic M&M commercial "They DO exist!
". I'm pretty sure it stopped airing in the last couple of years. Does anyone else remember seeing it last Christmas season?
If so, then it's now definitely a part of history (classic commercial history, that is).
I'm trying to remember the years some of these aired (or when they first came out).
The "Ronald McDonald ice-skating" was from 1986 to 1990 roughly, right?
The Folgers commercial was from '85 to '90 as well, I believe.
The "Fruity Pebbles" commercial was from 1992 to 1997, I think...
The "Coca Cola trucks" were from 1996 to 1999 roughly, right? Weren't the coca cola trucks replaced by the polar bears in the early '00's?
The hershey kisses bell ringing commercial was from...1999 to 2005 roughly?
And that M&M commercial...didn't it first air in the early '00's? Or maybe it first aired in 1998 or 1999...
This article I found from 2007 says they were still airing the M&M commercial back then, and that he thinks the hershey kisses commercial had stopped airing in the last year or two (and that was in 2007):
Anyone remember for certain?
