Pringles Newfangled Potato Chips

pringles_can

I know there has been mention of the Pringles’ Jingle Game on here, but I wanted to share a couple of commercials for the Pringles Newfangled Potato Chips, as they were called when they first came out, Did you know they were forced to change the name from chips to crisps in 1975? Here are two commercials, giving equal airtime to both sexes, one for the boys playing poker…

and one for the girls playing Bridge..

    I remember that Pringle’s jingle from the ’70s — always bounces around in my head at odd times. I heard on the news in the past 2-3 years that the UK passed the same law about changing the name from chips to crisps…weird!
