Apparently, the average Brit spends around 58 minutes a week humming commercial jingles. Not an insignificant amount of time considering how desperately infuriating most of those tunes actually are.

But, like them or not, product jingles have proved themselves to be one of the most effective tools for implanting brands and products in the minds of consumers.

They’re short, simple, and unbelievably catchy. And in some cases they stick with us throughout our entire lives. Even now you’re probably recalling a tv jingle from your childhood.

But without all that music and singing, how well would you fair in the land of the jingle? Below is our Great Big Jingle Quiz, filled with the partially complete lyrics of 20 different jingles. Your job is to see if you can do more than just recall the tune, but remember the lyrics too!

Good luck, and be sure to share your results with friends and family! (And if you’re doing this in the office, remember to apologise in advance to your coworkers for the annoying tunes you’re about to stick in their heads.)
