* Ear Worms in advertising are frequently put up against a wall, shot in the stomach and left to die in prolonged agony, by the Website/AdTurds ad deconstruction blog.

Added DiffLines:

* For our friends in Louisville:
** "Call the plumber whose name is his number / Call the plumber whose name is his number / 1-TOM-DREXLER, that's his number, yeah!"[[note]]Yes, this actually works.[[/note]]
** "Call 2-8-2, eighty-two eighty-two / United Dynamics to the res-cuuueee!"[[note]]United Dynamics is a company based on the Indiana side of the Ohio River that does home foundation repairs. At the time this jingle was written, people on either the Kentucky or Indiana side could call these seven digits from a landline and directly reach this business. Nowadays, with the Indiana side using two area codes, that doesn't work any more, and the non-musical part of the commercial gives the local number prefixed by its area code of 812, plus a toll-free number.[[/note]]

* In the days of the home computers[[note]]e.g., The UsefulNotes/Commodore64, the UsefulNotes/CommodoreAmiga, the "Atari 8-bit" series of computers, and their later Atari ST computer, among others.[[/note]] during the 1980s, some games shipped on special cassette tapes (i.e., that would be put into a tape drive) would have music that would play while the game was loading[[note]]Which often took a very long time when played from a cassette tape.[[/note]]. Ocean[[note]]Before they became part of Infogrames, who now uses the Creator/{{Atari}} name.[[/note]] is well remembered for its "loader music" as some people call it.
* Another example is the game Starglider developed by Argonaut Software and published by a company called Rainbird:
-->"Star......gli-der (from Rainbird!)!"

** This troper remembers watching an advertisement on TV in England, which was for a young girls horse magazine. It gained additional fame by being played on several occasions on the BBC 1 Radio Show hosted by Chris Moyles.
