We’ve all seen them, and we’ve definitely heard them. Over the years, there have been commercials for Las Vegas-based companies that became a normal part of our everyday lives after being forced to see them countless times.
We asked around for some “classic” Las Vegas commercials that you just can’t get out of your head.
Some of these businesses have gone under in past years, but the jingles and catchphrases used in their commercials will live on (likely forever).
Here are 16 commercials that have probably gotten stuck in your head if you live in the Las Vegas Valley:
The Heavy Hitter (Glen Lerner)
Sure, Glen Lerner practices law in more cities than just Las Vegas, but his commercials are too recognizable not to be included in the list.
With a, uh, … catchy jingle relaying his phone number — 877-1500, of course — it’s the first number some locals remember “Lern”ing (we’re sorry). These days, most people couldn’t recall their best friend’s number, but they probably remember Glen Lerner’s.
The Furniture Store
If you lived in Las Vegas in the 1990s, you know this commercial and its infamous line, “Who loves ya’, baby? The Furniture Store, that’s who!”
John Barr for Findlay Toyota
With his easy-to-remember tagline —“His name is John Barr, he’s gonna sell you a car!” and “I’ll do anything to sell you a car!” — as well as his crazy antics, John Barr has become a fixture on televisions across Las Vegas for years.
The Adventure Dome at Circus Circus
Another ‘90s classic, Circus Circus let viewers know, “We take your fun seriously” at the Adventure Dome.
Butterbean for the Surf Buffet
The Boardwalk Casino may be long gone, but its commercial lives on. You know you knew the words to this classic gem before Butterbean even said the words, “The Bean don’t eat no snooty food.”
Even if the sound on your television is turned down low, you’ve likely still heard that Abbey Dental guarantees the lowest prices in town. And if you’ve been paying attention lately, they’d like you to remember their phone number, too.
Encore Wynn Las Vegas
Between the upbeat background music and Steve Wynn sitting on top of Encore, you kind of feel like you’re riding Disneyland’s Soarin’ Over California ride, except in Las Vegas.
Carnival World Buffet at the Rio
While wearing an assortment of fruit on her head, Rio Rita danced and sang about all that the Carnival World Buffet has to offer.
“You just got a ticket, now what?”
The Jewelers of Las Vegas
Even by today’s standards, it’s not often that you see a local company featuring a prominent sports figure in its commercials. The Jewelers upped the ante on its commercial by including star power like professional boxer Larry Holmes.
“If I can finance him, and I will, then I can finance you!”
“Enough said, call Ed.”
Ben Stepman Hyundai
Although we couldn’t find a commercial featuring Ben Stepman himself, you’ll likely remember who he was when you hear his classic “in Henderson, of course…” line.
“Don’t get held hostage by fakes, call for Drapes.”
“FANCO, that’s where to go. F-A-N-C-O, for lights and fans that’s where be go, FANCO.”
Bourassa Law Group
The scrolling disclaimer at the bottom informs you that everyone in the commercial is an actor and the scenes are fictional, in case there was any question.
