"Whatever it was" is delivered in a surprisingly mournful way. The singer must've really cared about those aliens.

all the made up words in this commercial always bothered me as a child. -2 for screwing up my childhood whatchamacallit bar!

I hated it after they added the caramel. What asshole thought it was a good idea to change the recipe?
"Hey, people like this crispy crunchy chocolate bar. What can we do to make it better? I know! Lets make it gooey and chewy!"

Darker confections? I love dark chocolate! The Lindt 70% creations are like manna from Heaven.
Adding chewy caramel to the crispy Watchamacallit entirely defeated its purpose. It was like replacing the almonds with peanuts in a Mars bar or enveloping a Zero bar in milk chocolate.
The guy who saw that Twix was a popular candy?
A mars bar with peanuts is a snickers.

It's amazing the things that can turn up in the junk drawers of the mind.
"Junk drawers of the mind" is such a great phrase. I may have to steal it.
But you're absolutely right. This stupid jingle popped into my head this morning after lying dormant for almost two decades, and I couldn't resist checking Youtube for it.

Some how this one managed to get lost for awhile, but the second I saw it came rushing back. I'm still trying to find that one Mount Airy Lodge commercial that is still stuck in there.

Beauu-TEE-full Mount Aiii-ry LOOOODGE?
Oh, you bastard.
Not exactly the one I was looking for, but close:

To this day, "doodah, skinamarink, more than a mouthful" will pop into my head at random intervals. And I didn't even LIKE Watchmacallits.

Five stars because I STILL get this song stuck in my head and I haven't heard it in like ten years.

This and Fifth Avenue were the candy bars I remember basing their marketing around fucked up commercials.
Guess which candy bars aren't around anymore?
Whatchamacallits are still around. I saw one at the store this morning.

Oh god this thing. I had mentally dislodged it, and NOW IT'S BACK

This ran for so long, it is embedded in many minds.
