I need help remembering a commercial from 1983.  It begins with a young woman showing herself off in a flowered swimsuit before she dives into a swimming pool; then there was that same young woman again, only this time she is riding a bicycle.  Could you please tell me what commercial that was from 1983? And could you also tell me whether or not that commercial is available on YouTube?

It would help if we had a vague idea of what type of product was being advertised.

That could be any one of a million things.

Go to YouTube and search 1983 commercials.

You'll get several volumes of them.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I'm gonna guess: feminine hygiene product.

That's what I was guessing.

Or deodorant or diet soft drink.

Hi - and welcome.
Forgive me, but I must ask a few things:
1.) Are you sure this commercial you speak of is from 1983? Could it possibly be from '82, '84, or possibly 1979?
2.) Do you remember the brand of the bicycle and of what color?
3.) Was the swimsuit 2-piece bikini, or the 1-piece body bag? What color?
4.) Did she happen to eat within one hour before entering the pool?
5.) Did the bike have 'training wheels' (was she blonde)?
This was the one I remember, but she is skating, doncha know...and I used to like Blue Nun wine when Black Cat wine was not available.

I was thinking the same thing.  Commercials which sell a particular type of product or service seem to follow the same basic pattern...............

It's funny.  I remember the commercial that you're talking about and I think that it was for some sort of feminine hygiene product as well.

It's not like I could just fast forward through commercials in 1983.

It's Maxi-Pad.  It's probably somewhere on YouTube, but you'll have to look for it yourself, as my OS doesn't work with YT...

Dragonlight is NOT one of my "friends,". I cannot believe Dragonlight asked the same question almost verbatim about 3 weeks after it was already answered! SMH!

Yeah, it's as if he wants to ask the question, but isn't much interested in the answer.
 
Odd.  Maybe he'll ask again next month.

Thor, I also think it's odd as hell too that he asked the same question after already getting it answered!
WTF! I'm wondering if Dragonlight is a Troll!

I am 98 percent sane! Really! :P Note where the "really" is this time. At the end of the sentence, not at the beginning. :P

I still believe dragonlight is pulling our chain.
