Ayds Diet Candies Ayds was a brand name of boxed candies that were used as appetite suppressants for dieters starting in 1937. They were available in several flavors. Eating an Ayds candy was supposed to eliminate one's craving for a calorie-rich dessert. Ayds hit their peak of popularity in the late 1970s and had strong sales until the early 1980s. Then, unfortunately, the candies suffered the misfortune of having a name that sounded exactly like the disease AIDS. (This coincidence made some of the advertising pitches from the 1970s sound really bad: "Why go on a diet when you can have Ayds?") By the mid-1980s, sales of Ayds had dropped by 50% from their heyday just a few years earlier. The product's name was changed to Diet Ayds in 1987, but trying to persuade the public that Ayds had no connection to AIDS proved to be an uphill battle. By the end of the 1980s, the candies were discontinued.

Bubble Tape  6 Feet of Bubble Gum Commercial 1991 It belongs here in the 90's section do to its Popularity in the 90's for Kids. Bubble Tape is a brand of bubble gum produced by Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, introduced in the late 1980s[1][2]. It experienced its greatest popularity in the early 1990s due to its unique packaging and direct marketing to preteen children ("it's six feet of bubble gum for you, not them""them" referring to parents or just adults in general). Today, it is still a common find in most supermarkets, although advertising campaigns for it have subsided significantly. Bubble Tape comes in a small, round, plastic container similar in size to a hockey puck. This contains six feet (1.8 m) of gum wrapped in a spiral. The container functions much like a tape dispenser, although the top half can be removed.

Tragic Child Actress Judith Barsi Judith Barsi was a prolific child actress who appeared in at least 72 commercials and a handful of movies and TV shows before her horrifying death at age 10 in 1988. Barsi was spotted by a talent scout at a skating rink when she was nearly six years old. He mistook her for a three-year-old. Extremely tiny for her age, she was able to play much younger roles. At age 10 she was only 3'8" tall. Excellent at understanding precisely what directors wanted from her, Barsi appeared in commercials advertising McDonald's restaurants, peanut butter, orange juice, potato chips, soup, and dolls. It is estimated that she was earning close to $100,000 a year from her acting gigs. Fans of the sitcom Cheers will recall Barsi playing the role of a new bartender's adorable little daughter in a 1986 episode titled Relief Bartender (see photo). One of Barsi's last projects was providing the voice of Ducky in the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time. Barsi's home life was a nightmare: Her father, Jozsef, had fled communist Hungary. He was a violent alcoholic who mentally and physically abused Judith and her mother Maria, who was also refugee from Hungary. Judith had told fellow actors that her father had threatened to kill her on several occasions. On July 25, 1988, Barsi was shot to death by her father while she slept in the family's Los Angeles home. He also killed his wife. He stayed with the bodies for two days before burning them and turning his gun on himself. Barsi was supposed to audition for another role on the day she was murdered.

1967 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 3 OT The year 1967 was Canada's centennial, so it was somewhat fitting that the two Canadian NHL teams would meet in that year's Stanley Cup final. The 1966-67 NHL season was also the last year of the old six-team league; the following season the league would double in size to 12 clubs. Here are some highlights from the two overtime periods from Game #3 at Maple Leaf Gardens. It seems from another world: NHL players with no helmets, two barefaced goalies, no advertising on the boards or on the ice, and end-to-end excitement in a critical game! Bill Hewitt and Brian McFarlane call the action. The Toronto Maple Leafs would beat the Montreal Canadiens in six games to win the Stanley Cup. Toronto has not even been in the Cup finals in all the years since 1967.

Citroen Ad on Eiffel Tower One of the great architectural marvels ever created was the Eiffel Tower, named for its engineer Gustave Eiffel whose company built it. It was originally supposed to be a temporary structure erected to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the French Republic for the 1889 World's Fair in Paris. Not everyone in 1889 was enamored by it. One French newspaper referred to it as "Mr. Eiffel's monstrosity." When it was completed in 1889 it stood 1,046 feet tall and was the tallest man-made structure in the word--a distinction it held for 40 years when it was eclipsed slightly by the Chrysler Building in New York City. (In 1957 a 17-foot antenna was added to the top of the Tower, making it slightly taller than the Chrysler Building.) For about nine years, from 1925 through 1934, the tower that dominated the Parisian skyline featured tacky advertising for Citroen automobiles. Thankfully it hasn't been marred by such commercialism in more than 80 years.
