In a play on the famous George Orwell novel "1984," a legion of brainwashed citizens sits watching a propaganda video in a dystopian future as a rogue woman charges toward the big screen and hurls a sledgehammer at it.

1993: McDonald’s — Jordan and Bird’s shooting contest

1999: Monster — When I Grow Up
This ad from Monster features a montage of children detailing their dreams of being underappreciated and underachieving at work when they grow up. It's funny and ominous at the same time. Bing: Watch the video.
2000: Budweiser - Wassup
The 'Wassup' catch phrase became part of the cultural lexicon after Budweiser's 2000 Super Bowl commercial. The dialogue wasn't extensive but, then again, it didn't really have to be.
