The Retroist linked to this funny vintage Tide commercial.
I don't remember seeing this exact one on TV, but the daughter's hair is so wonderfully 1980s. And I love the Retroist's commentary: "Not sure why I remember this commercial so clearly. Either its the slow motion shot of the beets hitting the coat or just the idea that people write letters to a product and not the company that made it. I do it all the time. “Dear Twinkie, Are you and Chocodiles friends?”
