Today, on Throwback Thursday…better love moments through 1985 wine commercials!
While working on tomorrow’s Flashback Friday, I found a wine commercial from the era of the dot-com evolution. The company was formed in 1998 (starting at eVineyard), but the name was changed to Wine.com in 2000, the result of a merger between VirtualVineyards.com and WineShopper.com.
The company is still alive and well today, and considering how many sites established in the days of the dot-com boom are no longer claiming this, Wine.com is pretty darn lucky.
We won’t base their success on this commercial.
So we have this couple…
He’s a meek mouse of a man to her bitchy housewife.
They get a wine delivery from…Wine.com!!
But it does nothing to change her mood.
If the product name wasn’t mentioned, I wouldn’t know what this commercial was actually advertising. But ugh, that wife!
Anyway, click play. Hear about a wine website. Get annoyed by a bitchy wife!
She needs to loosen up with…a glass of wine. from Wine.com!
Flashback Friday will be along tomorrow. She will not be.
