15 out of 16, I got number 12 wrong because we had no Taco Bells in the time that commercial came out. We got them when " Want something tasty and delicious Taco Bell Taco Bell." was the ad on television.

Not sure they scored me quite right. Says I got 15/16
I answered Suave for the answer that was to be Secret, but they gave me the point?!?
Then I totally missed the Subway one as I do not remember there ever being one in my area. I was 9-18 in the 70s - never had a taco until I was 17, but we had moved by then and it was not at a Taco Bell. We ate at home for most of my life.

11 out of 16?
Broderick Crawford of Highway Patrol in 1970=I don't think so.
"Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman." isn't that Irish Spring ?
No, Secret deodorant.
Crawford was acting through 1982.

Irish Spring was the one that said "manly yes, but I like it too."

Nailed it! 16/16. I was a teen in the 70's. The only one I guessed on was #11, Subway. We didn't have Subway yet in our area back then, it was a sub chain called Suburpia. The subs came in a plastic bag, soaked in oil! I guessed the answer by the word "tracks" in the question...

Once again I agree with you. I do not remember a Subway back in the 70s nor do I remember Taco Bell back then either, but then I didn't have my first taco until I was 17, much to my kids surprise! We did not eat out much when growing up. I still don't enjoy it that much, prefer home cooking!

It was always no one does it like Sara Lee! putting the word doesn't is not grammatically correct I will even find residual evidence to prove this.

Here's the proof it was nobody doesn't like Sara Lee one of the original ads on you tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iirw147LHkQ

When I was a kid, it was "nobody doesn't like Sara Lee." I hated that commercial because it didn't make sense. It sounded like everyone hated their products, which I did, actually.
