"Nothin' works as haaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrd...as a Stihl!"
« on: August 12, 2018, 05:30:58 PM »

Anyone else remember this commercial jingle from the 1980s? Everyone says I'm just making it up, and I can't find it on YouTube at all.

It was for Stihl chainsaws and aired frequently during sporting events on TV.

I'm sure it exists; just like the "Raise your hood to Amalie" radio jingle for Amalie motor oil. I can't find that one, but I know that I heard it on Red Sox radio broadcasts 35 years ago or so.

Have you ever gone to fuzzymemories.tv? With all the questions you ask about old commercial jingles, I think it would really be in your wheelhouse.

Is it pronounced "steel" as in the metal?

I don't remember this exact commercial, no. But I do remember the 90's radio commercials (mainly on the John Boy and Billy Show) where the tag line was "A real deal from Stihl".

Longest time I always passed a stand-alone Stihl store in Stockton IL going to Galena and Dubuque, the only one I've ever seen. They closed about 5 years ago

Stihl. My dad sells and repairs machinery from that brand. Their invoices are by far the largest ones, and it's a PITA to enter them into the computer.

As for commercials, I can only recall a couple of them, and of course they are different to the American ones.

"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

Yes.

I always thought it was (and pronounced it as) "Still", not "Steel".
