Try it. You’ll like it! – Alka Seltzer commercial

One of the best ads of all time (along with I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!, Mamma Mia, that’s a spicy meatball and Newlywed groom’s first home cooked meal).

Here is a bit of the history behind this commercial: https://adage.com/videos/i-cant-believe-i-ate-the-whole-thing/29

Here is the copy:
I came to this little place. Waiter says, try this you’ll like it.

What’s this?
Try it you’ll like it!

But what is it?
Try it you’ll like it!

So I tried it. Thought I was gonna die. Took two alka-seltzer.

Narrator: Alka-Seltzer neutralizes all the acid your stomach has churned out. For your upset stomach
and headache take Alka-Seltzer and feel better fast.

Alka salsa works. Try it you’ll like it.
