Your memory of Audio Marketing, esp. B.S.

O.K. most of us old f--ts remember "the Copper Top Battery,  "when it rains, it pours", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel"(wouldn't go accross the street for a woman), "the quicker picker upper" and so very much more.  Kind of sad that most of us can do a commercial product jingle from an ad that hasn't been used for 20+ years.

My question is, what are/is some of the great Audio marketing B.S. phrases, slogans..etc. from the extended history of audio/high-end audio.  The first one is (with Ella) "is it live or is it Memorex", and of course we knew that Ella was great and Memorex was not.

I was only one year out of high school when Sony came up with the water purity slogan. I was shaking my head even then. 
 Kind of the same idea when I questioned an audio salesman about a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls, and the fact the drivers were all mounted on the back of the baffle. "We'll you see, the sound comes out of there SO fast, it isn't affected." Of course... why didn't I think of that?... .No sale.
Ah, the Zenith speakers that could blow out a match. OOOOh baby
