In advertising, it's all about earning public favor. And what easier way to do so than through a catchy jingle or some cartoon character that's just silly enough to make you forget how desperate he actually is to sell you raisin bread or car insurance. In some cases these little advertising creations have successfully pervaded the public consciousness in a way that's simultaneously harmless and fraught with ulterior motive. In any case, here are ten that roam freely amongst our cultural habitats, and transcend the products they were originally designed to hawk.
What's better to do on Halloween, other than to binge out on candy and pumpkin-flavored beer, than to binge watch every horror movie you've ever heard of (and some you haven't). You could phone up your obscure Japanese film buff friend for some recommendations on films involving businessmen having their eyeballs ripped out by innocent-seeming nubiles. Or you could tune in to virtually any basic cable channel and watch a back-to-back marathon of horror classics. If you go for the latter, here are a few movies you must catch.
Satire exists at its best to reveal an uneasy truth through a comedic lubricant. At its worst, it's a Wayan Brothers movie.

Here are ten funny film parodies to help you forget the money you spent on a ticket to see Epic Movie.

Seinfeld was the perfect sitcom. Contentious, both self-aware and socio-culturally-conscious, charming, enduring, consistent...the adjectives go on. The show had great concepts, great comic timing, great jokes, expertly-deployed hooks, and most of all, great characters. We all know the central four, each so well-defined and true to form, but some of the most memorable characters only showed up occasionally, for a single episode, or even just for a single gag. Here are ten of the best.
Bob Dylan, like a hurricane, is a force whose impact simply can't be ignored. His voice, in all its raw simplicity, was source material which not only defined generations of songwriters to follow, but which was distinct enough to allow his songs to be reinterpretted with complete objectivity. Here are ten examples of which.
In the early 1980s, a new form of heavy metal emerged from the garages of Southern California and Europe.

The entries are also arranged in chronological order of their first release. But remember, at fasttoptens you can add your own entries and vote for the number one slot!
