365 Reasons to Smile – Day 10
There was a time in elementary school when my classmates and I were constantly imitating a commercial on television.
We weren’t singing “my bologna has a first name” or “Plop. Plop. Fizz. Fizz.”
We were making the sound of a motorcycle in a beer commercial.
This was long before the advertising companies were shamed for making adult products appeal to children. In fact, I don’t remember anyone expressing concern that we were constantly making the sound of a motorcycle promoting “RAAAAIIIIIN EEEEER BEEEEEEER.” They were probably as amused as we were.
These days, we can find plenty of fault with the commercial, which can be seen on YouTube (Rainier Beer commercial), but watching it always makes me smile.
