Hawaii's Jingle Classics

Lex Brodie was famous for thanking everyone, “very much,” but Hawaii’s television and radio commercials have been full of catchy earworms for decades now. Here are some of our favorites—see how many of them are already stuck in your head….



Published:


"I'm Lex Brodie, thank you ... very much."

 


Ooh, Ah, Oh Wow, Ala Moana!

 


One of the good things, about Hawaii, is wonderful, KGMB…

 


This is Didi Ah Yo, and away we go!

 


Hawaiian Host Chocolates …. The gift of aloha, Hawaii’s gift to the world.

 


Far away and out of touch.

 


"Hello, do you have the time? Oh, 1 a.m. already? I bet they close soon ... oh, no rush huh?"

 

And here are some more:

“If you are not buying your diamonds at the House of Adler, you are paying to much.”

“Ikaika Belding is my name, I go Heeia school and I'm in da third grade…”

Term-Out is the Practical, Aerosol, Insecticide.

 Eh, no can hea’, get beer in my ear!

Hi, I’m Kalani. Come and be my neighbor at Ponderosa Pines. Call now, for sure!

It’s a good day for S&S Saimin.

I like the flavors of Yick Lung.

If you get bit upon your knee, by a mosquito or a flea, do not scream, Oh, no, not me! You tell your mother, Muhi me!

 

And last, but not least:

The exchange goes round round round
and down down down
in your glass glass glass
makes your mind
think yum yum yum
It's that Orangeade called Exchange

The exchange goes round round round
and down down down
in your tum tum tum
makes your mind
think yum yum yum
It's that Orangeade called Exchange
