Those advertising slogans that just stick in your mind...

I'm sure that everyone has heard (or seen?) an advertising slogan that just stays in the mind and is practically imperrishable to the point that it resurfaces in your memory years after. Advertisers have been studying phenomenons like these whilst attempting to cultivate fidelity among consumers to a brand. Advertising in itself is still an art but could it one day become a science ? The thought does raise some questions.

Anyway, enough of the chit chat. What I really wanted to ask is what slogans have become engraved in your memory or what slogans do you particularly like or even act out ?

Here's one that resurfaces to my mind every now and then :

"Do the shake and vac, and put the freshness back... do the shake and vac and put the freshness back !"

Hmm...so the slogan is different in the UK?
In the US, Bounty is "the quicker-picker-upper."
