We Bet You Never Knew About These Commercials From Yesteryears

With the plethora of ads gracing the small screen, we all have forgotten the taste of the vintage commercials. The 90s was the era when everything changed in every field. Soon when the television became a household stuff, the stuffs that it screened on its panel became a rage. We all wanted to take a sip from the soft drink bottle much like our favorite celebrity or we wanted to chew on the gooey chocolate and dance on the cricket pitch and if that wasn’t enough we even sang the Ketchup song…

No Not this…

But this…

Err…sorry…We didn’t really find the Shammi Kapoor styled tomato ketchup ad. But we came across some amazing vintage ads that we would like to share with you.
