Can you guess what is being advertised in these 1982 TV commercials?

"Aren't you glad you use ________?"

In 1982 there were no streaming services, no DVRs. Heck, plenty of folks probably didn't even have remote controls.

That meant television viewers sat through the commercials. And if you lived in that era, these ads are probably swimming around in the back of your memory.

Even if you are too young to remember '82, you can probably guess some of these brands. See how many you can guess!

  1. This Atlantis cartridge is being played on which video game console?
  2. The soda launched in 1982 with the tagline "Just for the taste of it!"
  3. This restaurant chain declared, "You'll like our prices. Your kids'll love our food."
  4. This soap was called itself "The Eye-Opener." What was it called?
  5. Which toothpaste came in this red box with the pearly whites?
  6. Which cola came in this can?
  7. Which fast-food chain dressed its employees in this uniform?
  8. Which fast-food workers wore this uniform?
  9. Which jeans brand featured this horse?
  10. Which automaker sold the Lynx?
  11. This soap asked, "Aren't you glad you use _______?"
  12. The store had a Polo-like brand of clothing called Hunt Club.
