Hey, folks. Thought I'd try this quiz my communications professor gave me out on some of you guys. See if you can complete this list of popular advertisement slogans without using Google or anything ;) After like 10 people try or something I'll show ya the answers. This topic can also be used for todays advertisement schemes, discussions, and media what-not.

Where do these come from?

I'm lovin' it.

Broadcast yourself.

Drive one.

Let's build something together.

Save money. Live better.

Just do it.

You're in good hands.

The real alternative.

You can do it. We can help.

That was easy.

An American Revolution.

A lifetime of learning opportunities (good luck with this one XD)

It's waaaaay better than fast food.

What's in your wallet?

We try harder.

It's the cola.

Moving forward.

Your potential. Our passion.

Pepper in some fun.

Rethink.

That used to be their slogan, they just recently changed it to "Save money. Live Better." because people got the vibe their products were cheap (well hey..it's Wal-Mart, folks..) but yeah, haha.

It's funny, I hardly recognise any of these, being Australian. We don't have some of the brands/stores that America does. We have labout 9 of those things, and the slogans are mostly different.

You all forgot that the "I'm lovin' it" jingle came from part of a song by Justin Timberlake. ಠ_ಠ

Whoa, that's awkward. I had no idea, what song might that be? And when did he do a deal with Em'Dees?

Whoa, that's awkward. I had no idea, what song might that be? And when did he do a deal with Em'Dees?
"I'm Lovin' It" is a single by Justin Timberlake. [...] Released as a limited single in the UK , it charted outside the Top 75, peaking at #79.
[i]i'm lovin' it is an international branding campaign by McDonald's Corporation. [...] The English part of the campaign was launched on September 29, 2003 with the music of Tom Batoy and Franco Tortora (Mona Davis Music) and vocals by Justin Timberlake, in which the slogan appears.
So, shortly after his single was released, it was used... wow, I didn't know it'd been around that long, though I've always known it was from Justin's song. xO
McDonalds can pay a lot of money, which is no doubt why he'd strike a deal with them.

Makes sense. Snap. I'm sure he's still getting paid for that too :P

So those of you who are chillin' in Aussieland (top place I want to visit, seriously, everyone always acts so happy and in addition to the Australian Open, I'd love to see all the sights) and England and what not, what are some of the popular chains and etc. you guys have we lovely N-Americans do not?

England stuff:
"Try something new today." — Sainsbury's, supermarket chain.
"Tesco. Every little helps." — Tesco, another supermarket chain.
Asda also had a slogan/jingle, but I forgot what is was...
"Should've gone to Specsavers" — Specsavers, optician.
"A good deal better." — forgot whose this one is.
"We do more." — MORE TH>N, insurance company.
"Where in the world? PC World!" — PC World, computer store.
"Curry's, always cutting prices!" — Curry's, electronics store.
"Always giving you extra." — Halifax, bank.
"Diamond is a girl's best friend." — Diamond, car insurance company that only insures female drivers.
Lastly is the whole bloody song of that Sheela's Wheels advert... another sexist car insurer in favour of women.


I must say, some of these really cheese me off...
