680 Home Appliances is a Filipino appliance store established on August 28, 1968 in 680 Rizal Avenue, Sta Cruz., Manila.[1] Throughout the years, the store had a downfall and only a few branches are opened today. However, commercials were made in its early years. Known commercials are the early 1980s version with Bert Marcelo dressed like a sultan that is available on the internet and a commercial, said to be creepy was aired in the 1990s.

Info[edit | edit source]

The commercial starts off on a black background with a mechanism of an electric fan, then zooms into a gear that moves, a gas stove, and a finished Standard electric fan. Then, an evolution of the 680 Home Appliances logo happened, hands shaking, appliances displayed, family shopping together with appliances shown and a girl walked and jumped. It then fades to the 680 logo moving position with a "Kliiing!" piano sound and after it pauses a second, in a black background with the logo on the top and the slogan, "Serving you for more than 25 years."[2]

The said commercial has a ominous humming choir music and a creepy voiceover. According to eyewitnesses, it is also said to be there's a scene where appliances are being formed and a tagline "We Build Our Name", while some said there's a creepy laugh. The voiceover, according to the eyewitnesses, also said the lines of "680 Quality Products, 680 More Affordable Appliances" and "Why don't you shop around with your friends..."
