TV Ads – 1978 – Honda Motorcycles + Tropical Blend Tanning Oil + Aim Toothpaste + Wallpapers To Go

Honda is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Japan and has been since it started production in 1955. At its peak in 1982, Honda manufactured almost three million motorcycles annually…..but by 2006 this figure had reduced to around 550,000 but was still higher than its three domestic competitors. 

Tropical Blend Tanning Oil is a Coppertone product…..which is at the other end of the spectrum from their most successful product…..their sunscreen….for instead of protecting the skin from the sun….like their sunscreen does…..Tropical Blend Tanning Oil accelerates the process of getting a tan…..and as a result of its usage…..they always had beautiful women in bikinis walking / laying on the beach….while being accompanied by a tiger.   

Aim Toothpaste has been one of the many popular products of the Unilever Corporation…..which as advertised fights plaque and decay…..with a unique formulat that helps kill germs and bacteria that can damage teeth and gums.     

Wallpapers To Go was a company out of Austin, Texas that provided home delivery of guaranteed wall paper order through a catalog…..and if the client wasn’t satisfied for any reason…..they received a 100% money back guarantee….but this Austin original had a very short life.
