Do you have a catch phrase? I’m not necessarily referring to writing, although I’ve read authors who over use a string of words. Commercials use the phrases to reinforce their product and sometime they become part of our speech.
Thanks to DVR (TiVo) commercials can be skipped. “But I digress….” If there is a really great ad that I think DH needs to see, I will save the TV show so he can see it too. I did this with the girl on the bicycle for Boost Mobile, and the Planters Cashew commercial.
The ad that we’ve used the catch phrase for is from IKEA. I’m not promoting IKEA here, but the spot with the woman who realizes the savings she got from the store comes rushing out screaming, “Start the car! Start the car!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C7oqXewyCE This is now our private catch phrase to each other that means we’ve been shopping and got steals and deals.
Yesterday while searching for a coffee table for my son, I had one of those remarkable days where I filled DH’s truck– both the bed and the cab, came home to switch to my small SUV. Woot Woot!! Off to Dallas in the afternoon! Scccooorrreeee!
