“Hey good lookin’! We’ll be back to pick you up later!”

If you are a child of the ’70s, surely you remember one of the cheesiest advertisements of all time: Mr. Microphone, the device that “actually puts your voice on the radio!”  It was the kind of advertisement you might catch if you were staying up late enough to watch Tomorrow with Tom Synder.  I remember cringing each time I saw the “Hey good lookin’!  We’ll be back to pick you up later!”   Granted, it is easy to laugh now.  But watching a replay of the Mr. Microphone ad on YouTube got me thinking: what are some advertisements from 2010 that our children will be mocking at years from now?  What are your candidates?
