We’re Not Candy PSA

If you ever doubt the effectiveness of commercials, just turn on a PSA that ran often when you were younger and see if you can easily sing along. I was browsing this morning and hit this pill safety PSA and I could instantly sing along. People often tell me that they are immune to the effects of advertising, but when I browse older commercials and can sing along or remember catchphrase after catchphrase, I do not see how that is possible.
