Chucks - Sightings in Advertising and Promotional Material
Some of the print advertising and promotional material that features Chucks:
- American Century Investments: Their 1999 prospectus cover, which also featured kids playing with some really vintage toy aircraft!
- S. C. Johnson (Johnson Wax): Featured a floor in desperate need of cleaning with S. C. Johnson products, dirtied by the distinctive Chuck-print.
- Stouffer's: Red high-top Chucks being worn, resting on the table, right next to the coupon.
- Target Stores (Target Financial Services): The "Take Charge of Education" program literature features red Chucks. The fabric and sole are quite obvious, but not whether they're low-top or high-top.
Some of the television advertising that features Chucks:
- Dimetapp Elixir: The boy trying to get away from the expected icky cough syrup is scrambling around in natural white Chucks. Mom's quicker and faster, catching him administer the dose of yummy Dimetapp Elixir... I wasn't able to note what type of sneakers Mom used to do this!
- Dodge... Different: The one with the business presentation... while the rest of the team was in staid clothing, the dynamic, visionary CEO was in blue jeans and red high-tops!
- Merck: Singulair (black high-tops)
- MTV: one guy in flame high-tops, another in monochrome black high-tops
- Neosporin Ointment: the boy with the cut is wearing red high-tops.
- Smuckers: jams and jellies
- Stouffer's: Same concept as the print ad, featuring a teen girl obsessed with her boyfriend. If you wonder why, he wears red high-top Chucks and rests his feet (on the table!) while he eats his Stouffer's Pizza.
- Texas Children's Hospital: Mom and Dad bring in their sick Chuck-wearing kid. He's all fixed up (not with new sneakers) by the end of the commercial.
