Thank you for sharing the link. I remember seeing some of the adverts on TV back in the day.

Way back in the mid-80s I used to frequently hear an FM radio advert for some kinda brand of blue jeans, featuring narration over a repeating little country-blues guitar melody. Would take me a coupla decades before discovering that what I was hearing was an instrumental version of Wings’ “Bip Bop”. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

On the drive into OKC, you see 3 billboards for a car dealership. The first two say All You Need Is Love . The third one you get to says Love is All You Need. I was driving so I couldn’t take pictures.

I saw one of these trucks while driving to work this morning.

Just saw that on TV. When did the Apple start allowing Beatles recordings in adverts again?

Paul is happy for Save the Chimps to use When I’m Sixty-Four in their ad to raise money.

Now this isn’t really a Beatles ad, but this late ’60s 7Up ad reminds me of something…

The 1973 Capitol ad for the “Red” and “Blue” albums, which makes a point of saying it is the “only authorised collection of The Beatles,” as it responds to the Alpha Omega pirate set which it was released in response to:

A 1974 ad celebrating 10 years on Capitol:

The 1976 Capitol ad for Rock And Roll Music , which strangely includes several images of solo Beatles:

And a UK Murray Mints ad from the ’80s:

Ran into this short McCartney interview while watching an old French TV show named Rapido. It appears he doesn’t approve of Beatles music being used to sell stuff.

Here’s a Heinz Beanz commercial that plays off of the story of Ringo taking them with him to India.

A depressingly dreadful piano cover of ‘In My Life ‘ is the tune for some new Christmas advert. I’m not too sure which company but it could be Amazon, all I see is some logo at the end which might be the Amazon arrow.
