TheDailyMeal: Top 10 Most Memorable FastFood Commercials

10 of 11

1) Wendy’s

At the very top of the fast food marketing mountain sits a simple, three word phrase: "Where’s the beef?"

In the spot, three elderly ladies examine a burger with a very large bun. Upon closer examination, though, they realize that the patty is tiny, leading actress Clara Peller to ask her signature question. The commercial first aired Jan. 10, 1984, and the simple query gave way to a slew of promotional items; found its way into a handful of TV shows, movies, and other media outlets; begat a country song by Coyote McCloud; and made a national celebrity out of Peller. The phrase even entered the national lexicon, as a catch-all in response to being offered something unsatisfactory. So congratulations, Wendy’s, you’ve created the single most memorable fast food commercial in American history.
