The first TV commercial. 


1979: Coca-Cola “Mean Joe Greene”
One of earliest big-time “Super Bowl commercials”, this is also one of the best. Viewers usually name it as their all-time favorite, while various remakes and spoofs have spawned from it.


1984: Apple Computer “1984”
Also showing up often in “best commercials of all time” lists, this ad for an early personal computer was inspired by George Orwell’s futuristic novel. Yeah, I don’t really get it, either.



1984: Wendy’s “Fluffy Bun”
Thanks to Clara Peller, “Where’s the Beef?” became an instant 1980’s catchphrase.



1986: California Raisins “Lunchbox”
Those claymation R&B raisins became popular enough to star in their own TV specials and series and sold a slew of official merchandise along the way.



1987: The Partnership for a Drug-Free America “Fried Egg”
The best anti-drug message is a simple anti-drug message. Why isn’t this still on TV? I can think of at least 20 celebrities that need to heed its words right now!
