Mr. T get some nuts

In 1995, Snickers launched a website to support its sponsorship of Euro ’96, a pan-European football tournament. The website was groundbreaking in soliciting match previews and reviews from its visitors, who generated some 4,000 match reports, and the website won various international design, advertising and online community awards.

In the early 2000s, deep fried candy bars (including Snickers, and Mars bars) became quite popular at U.S. state fairs and in pubs around the U.K. and Australia, although they had been a local specialty in some North of England and Scottish fish and chip shops since at least the mid-1990s.

Mr. T (born Laurence Tureaud on May 21, 1952) is an iconic actor known for his roles as Sgt. “B. A.” Baracus in the 1980s television series The A-Team, as boxer James “Clubber” Lang in the 1982 film Rocky III, and for his numerous appearances in the WWF and pro-wrestling. He is also well-known for his distinctive mohawk hairstyle and for wearing an excessive amount of gold jewelry. He currently stars in the reality show I Pity the Fool, shown on TV Land; the title of which comes from his Rocky III catchphrase.

He has also appeared on some Comcast commercials, and in the United Kingdom advertises the chocolate bar Snickers with the slogan “Get some nuts!”

Ringo Starr tries to get the lads together again over pizza

Pizza Hut is a restaurant chain and international franchise based in Addison, Texas, USA (a northern suburb of Dallas) specializing in American-style pizza along with side dishes including (depending on location) buffalo wings, breadsticks, and garlic bread. Pizza Hut is the world’s largest pizza restaurant chain and is part of the YUM! group of restaurants.

Richard Starkey, MBE (born 7 July 1940), known by his stage name Ringo Starr, is an English musician, singer and actor, best known as the drummer of The Beatles. In the mid-1990s, Starr appeared in an advertisement for Pizza Hut, pronouncing that the time is ripe for ‘the lads’ to get back together. At the commercial’s pay-off, he is joined by three members of the Monkees and quips to the camera, “Wrong lads.”

The Monkees were a pop-rock quartet created and based in Los Angeles in 1965 for an NBC American television series of the same name. The show, which ran from 1966 to 1968, helped make them one of the 1960s’ most popular music acts. The Monkees disbanded in 1970, but several reunions and semi-reunions have since taken place. The Monkees last worked together in 2001.

Jason Alexander sings and dances for the McDLT

Jason Alexander (born September 23, 1959) is a television, cinema and musical theatre actor, best known for his role as George Costanza on the hit television series Seinfeld.

George Louis Costanza is a fictional character on the United States-based television sitcom Seinfeld (1989–1998), played by Jason Alexander. He has variously been described as a “short, stocky, slow-witted, bald man” (by Elaine Benes), “Lord of the Idiots” (by Costanza himself), and as “the greatest sitcom character of all time”.

The McDLT is perhaps best remembered for its marketing, which focused on variations of the theme “Keep the hot side hot, and the cool side cool.” A fairly well-remembered 1985 commercial released to market the new sandwich featured a young Jason Alexander, and has obtained a minor following on the web.

Mountain Dew is a caffeinated, sweet, citrus-flavored soft drink produced by PepsiCo, Inc. It was invented in Marion, Virginia and first marketed in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1948, then by the Minges family in Fayetteville, North Carolina and across the United States in 1964. When removed from its characteristic green bottle, Mountain Dew is bright yellow-green and semi-opaque.

Steven Seagal (born April 10, 1952), is an American action movie actor, producer, writer, director, singer-songwriter, and activist. Seagal has become the target of internet-based criticism. However, the line between Seagal’s own work and a parody portrayal of Seagal is becoming increasingly blurry. The abovementioned commercials for Orange SA and Mountain Dew poke fun at his action aikido style. Seagal is sometimes considered to be in on the joke.
