[Long boring story]Timex had one of my favorite commercials of all time. I've never been able to find the video, but I recall it being something like:
We are strapping this Timex watch to the bumper of this Chevy truck. We are now going to put the truck through its paces.

They drove the truck like lunatics, taking jumps, running into stuff, dropping (large) parts. At the end, JCS (I assume) walks up and says something like, "Oh dear, this truck is an absolute mess, but this Times watch keeps on ticking."

My other favorite was:
Sherwin-Williams paint has been used for a variety of applications. Montage shows stuff like the White House, famous bridges, Apollo rocket, etc.

We think we can handle your bathroom.[/Long boring story]
