MANDOM: Charles Bronson Commercial Collection, Bonus Vintage Posters

Probably the most amazing series of commercials with the most amazing jingle in the world. Ever. There’s so much wrong. And so much right.

Even more amazing? When we stayed with my Sister In-Law in LA, her boyfriend Matt actually had a bottle of the stuff. It’s even got the jingle around the cap.

Now that’s a jingle, folks. If its melancholic nostalgia isn’t stuck in your head now, watch the rest of the series …

Mandom Commercial 3 – Catch a fish with his bare hands. Then throw cards that emit Hanna-Barbera SFX. Man o man.

Slathering up with the old man. Out in the middle of nowhere. Ah, memories.

Splash splash. Bang Bang. Pew pew.

What a way to end the series. With a he-man, spinning around in his office chair like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music.
