Commercial Jingles From Your South Florida Childhood That Will Stay With You FOREVER

Ever wonder why you cashed in your promised quince gift of a boob job at the Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery? Well, it's totally because their catchy as hell jingle used to advertise their very superficial services was on the radio all the freaking time!

We down here in South Florida also remember a particular set of advertising tunes those north of PBC have never before heard. These songs drove us to do things like be there at the Fair, get it at the Swap Shop, and even got us thinking that Opa Locka was the place to be! We chanted, "Miami Dolphins, Miami Dolphins number one!" while waiting for the bathroom at school, in front of the television, and even, sometimes, in our sleep. 

What follows are some commercial jingles that from your South Florida youth that will follow you forever.
