Slogans are such a big part of advertisements, and the 80s gave us some of the most memorable. It’s what made us want to use their products. I can remember us kids asking, “Where’s the beef?” whenever we ate a hamburger or singing that we didn’t “wanna grow up” when we went to Toys R Us. Here are 10 slogans that have lived on and we can still recite today. Once you hear them, you’ll never get them out of your head! Now That’s The 80s I remember!
1. “Be A Pepper”
“I’m a Pepper, you’re a Pepper, wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too?” Shasta was for losers. TAB was a laboratory accident. Capri Sun was a social statement.

No regular battery looks like it or lasts like it!
3. “Where’s The Beef?”
Clara Peller (August 4, 1902 – August 11, 1987), was a manicurist and American character actress who, at the age of 81, starred in the 1984 “Where’s the beef … First airing on January 10, 1984, the Wendy’s commercial was a big hit!

Two cars pull up beside each other, roll down the window and say, “Pardon me, but do you have any Grey Poupon?”
7. “I’ve Fallen And I Can’t Get Up”
“I’ve fallen… and I can’t get up!” was a catchphrase of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
8. “Avoid The Noid”
Back in the ’80s, Domino’s Pizza started a bizarre ad campaign that featured an odd little red-costumed gremlin with rabbit-like ears, known as the Noid. The pizza chain’s commercials would feature the Noid attacking pies and attempting to delay deliveries, under the slogan “Avoid the Noid.
9. “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up, I’m A Toys R Us Kid”
“I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys ‘R’ Us kid.” This should be everybody’s theme song. Nobody should ever completely grow up. We should all keep a little “Toys ‘R’ Us kid” in us somewhere.
10. “Just For The Taste Of It, Diet Coke!”
